You could try the battery terminal disconnect for at least 15 minutes to reset parameters. Then when you go out and drive for the ECU to relearn your habits; if they are conservative of course, hopefully you will see an improvement. If you are heavy footed like I try not to be because I like hearing the roar, then fuel mileage is going to suffer. As far as around town, I average 16.5 at speeds below 45mph and being pedal conservative. On the freeway, I have gotten 20-22mpg cruising around 72mph. Now if your in hilly terrain, again, these numbers will suffer due to the demand for pull power up them hills.
