Poor gas milage comes from things like a slipping clutch or drive belt, dragging brakes, worn gears or bearings, wrong ignition timing, badly adjusted float or leaky carburetor, clogged exhaust... idling a lot, running at top speed a lot, windy conditions and hilly terrain, carrying a lot of weight..

As far as rings, i cant see where worn rings will do it.

If anything, the low friction of well worn rings might increase gas milage... unless rings are so bad the bike obviously doesn't have any power at all.
