    Could be a driver doing exclusively short city trips with a CVT: engine spends most of its time warming up, so RPM is always higher, fuel enrichment is on much of the time, and combustion efficiency is worse.

    The worst average on trip B I've seen was 35mpg. That was with winter tires. I don't think it was driven with a very light foot.
