Is 18 MPG all a 99 RL will get?

We filled up my 99 RL and drove it all week. Mainly interstate, but some back roads, and in town some. Averaged 18MPG. Is this normal? I would think it would do better. Car has 215,000 miles. Runs on 18" wheels, and the drivetrain/engine/exhaust is all stock. Only mods are the HEAVY steel crome Donzi wheels&tires. I know the V-6 Accords get close to 30 MPG. This car was last tuned up at 160K. It does have a check engine light that is for a bad cat. The guy I bought it from bought a 2001 RL with 78K on it, and he says it gets the same MPG. Anyone have any commints?
