I don't think I'll be bragging about my MPGs at the track. It's about who finishes first .
Yes,you don't NEED AWD in winter but when it's at 10" or so AWD will ensure you get there and much less to worry about and try to get fwd going on a slope from a standstill.

I got 28mpg hwy from my STI on a trip from NM up to Denver but around town it's in the 19s but that's why I bought the Focus.
