Remember that nothing has less rolling resistance than a worn out Low Rolling Resistance tire. So even if you replaced your tires with a new set of OEM Enasaves, you would still notice a slight reduction in your fuel mileage.

I know this sounds crazy...but you aren't driving around with your automatic climate control on all the time, right?
If there is something wrong with your car (like a bad coolant or air temperature sensor), this could have a significant impact on fuel mileage. There is a reading in the car's computer called "Fuel Trim." It's basically a reading that indicates if the computer is being directed to use more (or less) fuel than usual. You can read more about it here:
Fuel Trim as a Diagnostic Tool
A good tech would have looked at your fuel trim. A tech who's only getting paid 30 minutes of warranty time to look at your car may have just looked for error codes.
