There is no power steering fluid since the steering is manual. LOL It takes a little braun and muscles, it's a good form of exercise to look at the bright side, and most of all you save a lot of gas at the same time. Hey i wish my car was like that.

Try inflating the front tires to mfg spects. You could add a few pounds more if it reduces the steering drag.

Your serpentine belts tension is loose or the belt is going hard. Check the tension on the tensioner pulley and condition of belt.
The belt is slipping on your accessory pulleys when a load is placed on them such as power steering, alternator and clutch fan.

Hard steering

It is normal for a car without power steering to be difficult to turn the wheels when the car is stationary or at very low speeds. Once you are moving above say 10 mph the steering should be fairly easy.

2002 hyundai elentra hard steering

I do not know if this is problem or not but many of the automobiles made today have a steering pump that reacts to engine speed. The faster you go (to a point) the more taunt the steering. This is to give you feel of road and keep from over steering. Either you are not used to this or the pump or pump back feed information has a problem.

2001 Toyota Echo Fuel consumption

EPA mileage figures are estimates, and seldom does it have anything to do with the real world, My new car is rated at 19 city and 28 hiway, it gets 22 MPG max. The only thing you can do is make sure the pressure in the tires is correct and run the recommened oil, keep the car in good running order.
