For good measure, I'm getting 2-3 mpg better mileage than my own car, driven on the same roads and the same loops thru' town, etc.

Something sure as hell wrong with mine, and I just hope they can find it and fix it. Clutches are reputedly being replaced.
That's exactly my situation right now.

I've been driving a loaner all week which is same year as mine, 2012 but this one is the SE sedan and I have the Titanium hatchback. The loaner drives like what I would expect mine to do but doesn't and this loaner gets much better mileage than mine. I've been driving the exact same route and haven't changed my driving habits and this car gets significantly better mileage.

Not sure when I'll get my car back, they're waiting for parts to replace the clutches.
