I use to easily get 29+ MPG with our NA 5k wagon when it had the hard as
rock 185/70/14 Toyo tires.  Now that I'm running the Dunlops, the gas
mileage has gone down significantly.  How much so?  Well, I use to fill up
every two weeks.  Now I fill up every nine days.  Simple math says that I'm
now getting about 20 MPG -- a 33% reduction!
