The RPM'* are fine. That'* where it should be.

When it warms up, the milage will spike. At 65 mph consistently in warm weather, I'll get well over 30.

Yea, In upper midwest/new england states[canada too ] where it constantly stays cold during the winter, it plays hell with your mileage. Going 70-75 on the highway on a cold day or night Ill average about 25-27 mpg. But thats also with the car being cold for most of the day at school. Check back in on this thread in about april or may timeframe and give an update, thats one of the only ways we would beable to tell unless you get it dyno'd in a controlled enviroment where the ambient temp is between 50 and 70, and the cars warm.

Yea, I've been getting crappy mileage due to the cold weather. Another reason why winter is stupid.

Agreed, plus I recently learned that gas stations use a "winter mix" of gas during the cold months... and it notoriously produces lower mileage as well.

Come on, SPRING!
