  I have the same car and get 39mpg period.  Drive it hard, drive it easy, 
let my 
wife drive it, 39mpg.  The only difference is with A/C it might drop to 35 or 

in the winter it may drop to the low 30's but I've never hit 40.  Then 
Nate!.  : P  I've been having an injector miss at idle for several months 
now and just haven't had/taken time to run them and see which one.
  I'd thought about doing the compressor wheel while I was in there but 
know if it'd hurt or help efficiency and heating.  Thought a slightly rougher 

surface could either make drag that would be detrimental or benneficial, 
by helping to "hold" the air as it pulls it in.
  Not sure if CA's diesel is different but I hit a tank full at a station 
once that 
had no power, lost better than 5mpg too.  It was bad enough that I ran 
out of fuel about 30 miles from home instead of easily making it.  Good 
thing I had a quart of oil in the bed of the pu and put it in the tank.  It 
enough to get me up the hill and coast most of the way to the next station!
