You're prob right about the hybrid. And I'm not really complaining about my car. Two other contributing factors : the 18" wheels and sticky Michelins from the Ti Handling Package and my heavy right foot as I get used to the car and break in the DCT. At some point, I'll lay off the stomp and go green lights and continuously dropping into S and shifting manually. I fully expect the MPGs to creep up to mid 20s.
