For the past few weeks I was doing mostly freeway driving (approx.
70 miles / day ) and was getting about 48 MPG.

This week-end I did mostly surface streets, start & go, many parkings, no
jump-starts or fast accel. and the MPG dropped to around 32 ???? :x

(same gas from same station, same tire pressure, same weight on car)

Any ideas ?

35 MPG --- ouch

I would guess that over the day I parked 5 or 6 times.

Otherwise 'normal' start and stop traffic (0 tp 30 mph)

The weather was warm and did not see the 'green' thermometer on the cluster so I assume that there were no warm up cycles .

The AC WAS On in Auto ( No MAX and the thermostat was a bit left of 76)

Next time I'll use the 'natural' AC and see how it goes.
