Is there an adjustment you can make?

On my old Acura you could calibrate the temp sensor.

lmfao! DUDE! Mine read 125 when it WAS really 115. But I'm in Phoenix lol. I plan on taking the car to the dealer to have them check it out.

Does it help?

Seems if I enjoy "spirited driving" I get 13.7 MPG for a tank, then if I baby it I get about 14.5

I get about 12 mpg at track events, 17 - 19 in town and 24 - 28 on the highway. Having watched the first gas "crisis" and driven through the second one in the Seventies, I'm rather conscious of fuel mileage. On secondary streets, I *****-foot the throttle.

Lol dude! 14.5 babying the car?!? That is FAR from normal. I drive a bit more aggressive than the average person and I average 19-21 mpg with almost exclusively city driving. Might want to get something checked.
