Nope. Gas mileage was terrible the whole round trip due to crazy bad rolling resistance in snow and especially slush

I got my winter tires taken off yesterday and my low rolling resistance ecopias on again. Huge difference for mpg. I then put on my rear wheel skirts. Car looks nice and gets attention again now

A route I’ve been doing the last month with winter tires was getting me 58 mpg average. 61 on the best driest warmest days. Yesterday was slightly wet and cold and the same route got me 66 mpg. Would’ve been even more if drier and warmer weather

Then at night in the active rain with wheel covers it seemed to boost same route again but about 2 more mpg. Too many weather variables. But it seems like for speeds under 55 and with mixed city driving the low rolling resistance tires and wheel skirts boost almost 10 extra mpg.
