I have a Titanium with 18" wheels (suspension package).

When I first bought the car, it was getting much lower miles per gallon that I thought it should. ~24 mpg in the city and a best of ~34 mpg highway. As the engine broke in, currently just over 6,000 miles, I have noticed that city mpg has increased up to 29-30 mpg. I still have not bested the current 34 mpg on the highway, but haven't taken a long trip like that since. I did drive ~250 miles yesterday, but I was not driving for max efficiency, only netting 33 mpg. Driving at 90-100 mph is not the way to get max efficiency.

Keep the faith, as your engine breaks in, the efficiency will improve.
