Default Average Gas Mileage for 2000+ SSEi crowd

I was wondering what all the other SSEi'* got for gas mileage? I have been getting around 18.6 or so on the last couple of tanks and now I am getting 17.6 mostlly city driving. I am wondering if that is normal or not for a stock SSEi? Driving style is mostly the same and I only drive maybe 12-14 miles a day to work and back.

Which is about my average. On the last several long trips I've taken, I've been a 30-31mpg on a car with just under 100,000 miles. In town, it all depends on the length of the trips and the weather but 16-18mpg in our relatively small town is about my average.

I average around 470-500 miles per tank, according to the trip odometer. I am averaging around 24-26 mpg. I drive mainly in the city, 20 mile round trip from home to work. However, when I do travel on the interstate I average around 30+ mpg.

15 to 18 in town, 24 to 28 on the highway. Steady state with no stop and go, I can get 36 mpg over a 2 mile stretch.
Cold start with a short 10 minute trip will average 12 mpg.
Car has 30,000 miles on it.
