No they lowered the threshold of the tpms to accommodate the lower pressure and as soon as that was done the average mpg went back to normal. almost instantly. I was getting scared with the 7.5mpg ratings it was a good week like that with a few resets. I was warming the truck up due to extremely cold weather but that was rediculous.
