I'll be interested to hear more about this post-recall 'recall' (or whatever it is).

Oh, on an extended trip to Tahoe I got 30.9 mpg. Looking forward to seeing the downhill trip numbers.
I seem to be in the same boat as you for fuel economy. But I really have not driven a whole lot since the recall so been trying to just wait and see. I have filled up 2 times since the recall and one of those was an early fill up. I am down to a 1/4 tank right now though, not sure how many miles and I normally do not put much faith in the computer mpg but it too is much lower than normal reading out at 24mpg. My typical average for a tank was around yours.
