I can tell you from real world experience that the 18's have an effect on MPG.

With the 18's on, and with my driving, I was averaging about 8.5L/100km (33.2mpg).

With my winters on (195/65R15 91S BF Goodrich Winter Slalom KSI on steel rims) my mileage improves to 7.3L/100km (38.7mpg), that is a considerable difference.

Makes me almost want to keep the winters on...
