Since then, it has improved a little -- I'm within 1 MPG of my average from before the service.
Same here..Just drove from Prescott, AZ to Durango, CO and had a 1 or 2 MPG drop from previous experience.
Drove from Durango to Colorado very close to pre-update numbers.
Averaged 35.6 first day, 37.1 second day. Hard mountain driving, pretty happy with the performance
