Ok so that's the salt is out here now I have put the vx away. Winter plans for it. The cx that I always got 42-43 mpg worst tank ever was 38-39. Well I got a tank that was 34. Ok no panic I had to commutes to work in blizzardlike conditions. I also was stuck in an accident for 45 min with the engine idling. Hey its like 20deg and I gotta work out in it all day. So I thought that was it well next tank same thing 34-35. I checked tire pressure I checked for dragging brakes I'm going to do cap and rotor as they are flakey looking. I've just never tracked every tank like I have been lately. It just seems like a large drop in winter I know 2-3 wouldn't surprise me but 7-8 seems high.
wHILE i DO EXPERIENCE SOME WINTER DROP OFF, mine tends to be the gas mix because, I live in areas that dont have extreme low temps and bad weather.
Since the Q45 had automatic air/heat, I tend to run a/c all the time in the summer and very little in the winter. So I get some trade off there. (my summer mpg isnt as high as it could be)

My driver car is always garages also Well I went to put new cap and rotor on car while test driving she's dead. No spark. Man I love having to get all the neighbors to help get the car uphill 300 foot driveway covered in ice and snow. And I can't push it into the garage. I beg to differ with the list in regards to cold tires more resistance. Hot tires sticks sticky well sticky. Witch rolls better a sticky ball or a hard ball? But now I got a dead cx.... Trying to find test specs for the dizzy igniter and coil.
