So that makes three factors that would negatively impact mileage,
especially as reported by the trip computer.  I'm feeling a little better
about the large difference now, even thought it is no longer mine.

True, but if the tires are also larger diameter, the speedo will read low
and record less than actual mileage. (or at least less than before). 
That alone would give different MPG figures.

With my previous 200q20v Avant, I noticed asignificant drop in mileage
when I changed tires.  I went fromone size too small to one size too
large.  I thinkit wasdue to tire weight more than anything else.  I
wassurprisedby the amount of the change though.
