After averaging around 34 for several tanks mine all of a sudden dropped to about 31 for the past 2 tanks - should pass 5,000 miles this afternoon. Only difference is I started carpooling with a neighbor so there's the added weight and had to start using A/C in the morning as well as in the afternoon to be considerate to him. I would hope mileage wouldn't plummet that much by increasing A/C use to full time from half time. I'm running a little test now to understand mpg with and w/o A/C.

Hopefully it's just bad gas - will also switch stations at the next fillup.
