    You're going to take a mileage hit with the change to winter blend fuel, plus colder temps require a richer mixture, which also impacts your mpg, too. Check tire inflation. Even at 35 psi, my G4 will...

    Mirage: ready and waiting

    Just going to ask: is the air selector on fresh air or recirc? You want recirc for coldest a/c, but fresh for winter. Sometimes folks forget that, especially in a quick change in the seasons. That's...
