Actually, I'm the opposite of that. My foot was WAY more often to the floor in the Titanium because of the power deficit (with respect the ST, that is). The ST doesn't require nearly as much throttle to blow around slow idiots in the left lane. But less throttle doesn't mean it's getting better MPG than the Titanium...I just don't have to thrash it as hard.
