Yes... I've always done mostly mixed city/highway driving.? Mine is big power/big turbo?too.? However, fuel mileage on mine has always hovered around the typical I-5 turbo figure... 20-23mpg depending on the right foot.

I am afraid your gonna have to quantify the "poor" mileage you have said.
I find I get rather crappy fuel economy, but I have a 450 HP big turbo 
engine that I drive only rarely. So when I actually drive it, I am usually 
into the throttle rather good. Do you drive lots of city ? City can be hard 
on mileage in these cars simply because they like to go, and most of us like 
to let them go.
So, be specific as to what mileage you are getting, and when / where it is 
that your getting that mileage.
