If your car is newish it could simply be the burning of the paint on the exhaust system. When driven "harder" in sport mode it probably caused more exhaust heat.

Just got back from a 7 hour road trip at interstate speeds (65 to 80 mph). Averaged 28 to 29 mpg for a x-drive wagon with a huge cargo box on the top. Without the box I should easily break 30+.
