i think thast pretty normal
i'm in NB Canada,
are roads are pretty much covered 99% ice atm
i'm getting around 15-20mpg (95% city driving)
during summer i get 20-25 mpg city ( stop sign's every 400m, lights etc, always stop and go every 30 second's until i get to work)

if i jump on the highway i can still get 40 + mpg

i think the decrease has a lot to do with
-wheel spin (snow/ice)
-i'll get way way worse mileage if i don't warm up (10-15 minutes stat up, especially when it gets down to -35 degree's)
-winter tires have more resistance

note i also have 2012 5 speed
