Interesting indeed. My wife has been driving our 335d more this winter (I need the Highlander's AWD and snow tires when skiing), and I noticed that the mileage she is getting is more in the 29-30 mpg range than my 31-32 mpg. Granted she has more shorter trips (about 9 miles into Issaquah) than I (fewer trips, generally of longer length but mostly the same speed as hers), but it explains at part of the differences in mpg.
