I noticed the same thing, while it is still cold enough to run without the A/C it is set to off. In another 4 weeks it will need to be on till October. Still I am averaging 17 running around and 22/23 on th highway.conman said:I love my x but have never been happy with the milage. 14/15 mpg on average. Since I am in an ethanol state, I have to live with it.
But, I noticed yesterday that if I run the heat in auto(not full auto) and turn off the air conditioning (Touring without nav) manually, my mileage goes up noticably. I guess that the compresser runs constantly under full auto to keep things defrosted and therefor lowers my mileage.

Occasional Belt Pkway stints raise my mileage to 13-14, but usual city-only driving produces no better than 11-12 mpg. (In the winter, it's actually lower due to slightly longer warm-up times).
One fill-up last winter with mostly snow-driving produced 9 mpg - lowest ever for me.
