i dont think warm up time plays a part in this llike remerson states, i always do the same ritual (i dont like to travel outside my box) , i gas up the night befor i leave , next morning drive and dont stop till i get there (or i gotta p). my morning start up is always the same , turn key start truck , put seat belt on , wait 30 seconds and drop it in drive. so cold starts and warming up isnt a question as the milage drop im talking about is a one shot drive , no cooling down time just straight thru driving. so i know my milage drop is really there. noticed it on the way down and said theres no way i lost almost 3mpg , rechecked it on the way back and yep , just under 3mpg drop since my last trip down.
