Some of the problem is just a part of life in the midwestern winter with the blended fuel. As cold as it's been around here a lot of places are blending 30-40% #1 fuel in which makes less power and kills your mileage a bit, but saves you from gelling up 90% of the time. The warm up time required also burns a lot of fuel when it's running around 0* on the thermometer. If you drive even a portion of your miles in a city/town environment it will add in too. I'm only a couple of hours west of you and I've only been getting 12-13 mpg at best the last few months. In the summer time I average 17-18 mpg's with the same kind of driving. Nothing but highway I can see 20. I do change my files on my SCT for winter and summer driving.
