Windsailor, I have the Ti Handling package with the 18" wheels and sticky Michelins. I love the ride / handling balance the package has but am seriously wondering what the MPG effect is.

If others are averaging, say 27 MPG in driving conditions similar to mine, and I'm averaging 22 - can the 18" wheels and tires really be a 30% hit? I don't thik I thrash my car too excessively.
