So, about 4 days ago I fill up on gas at my local shell station, 93 octane all that stuff, full tank. Now, today, after back and forth school driving, with some occasional 20 mile trips, my gas is at a quarter tank. I shift around 3-4k rpm, about 3 times higher than 4k rpm, and thats it. Something wrong? Or is it just the cold?

Yeah, colder weather does adversely affect your mpg.

How many km did you drive in total?

Did you check your tire pressure?

Did you reverse a lot?

Did you let anyone else drive the car?

I drove about 120 miles, dunno how many km that is.

Tires are new pirelli's at 38 psi, I know, discount tire shop nearby put them on for me about a week and a half ago.

I did not reverse a lot, only to get out of my garage, and then once again on the driveway after warming up.

No.

Yeah, that's about 200km, less than half a tank's worth.

Hmm...did you ever idle for any extended periods?

about 3 minutes each morning to let it warm up, and every time I started it up and it hit 2k rpm.

Oh yeah, I'm not so much concerned about MPG as I am if theres something wrong with my car.
