OK then, well, it then stands to reason that driving with a *smaller* than
intended tire is going to calculate a higher MpG rate. I always get them
mixed up.
Either way - the question posed was "could tire size have something to do
with it".
The answer is definitively:
Regardless of whether it's smaller or larger - it will influence the MpG.
