Re: Lower than Expected MPG, problems?
Another thing that has been in my mind is trip length. A lot of my trips are short length. The motor usually is just reaching full operating temps by the time I get to where I am going. How much will engine temps affect mileage. This does not address the issue of highway mileage falling though.
