Default Lousy Winter Mileage 2016 Eco

I live in Sacramento, CA and bought my 2016 Eco a year ago. It was cold, but I consistently got about 60 mpg around town (and that's with a spare donut tire in the hatch).

All of a sudden, this winter, my mileage has dropped down to about 45 mpg...that's a 25% loss. I'm driving it with the same high mileage techniques and am taking approximately the same types of trips...

I am going to go in for my 12 month service the end of this month and will ask the dealer to check the car out for the poor mileage. But if anybody has any insights, please let me know... If my dealer provides any insights (doubtful), I'll share them with you.

Well, a little less milage in Winter is often normal due to less favorable road and traffic conditions, but 25% - definitely something wrong. I guess your dealer will find that out quickly. They have the diagnosis tools and readouts. My hint- something electronic needs adjustment or replacement, but don#t ask me what..
