My daughter has an 2007 Civic EX and we put a set of Michelin Pilot Sports on it. They were the original size. She also has had her mileage drop like a rock. She was getting 40mpgs and now around town she is getting about 19mpgs. She lives in Boston and I am in NJ. So I asked her to check the tail pipe. She ran her finger inside the pipe and said it was real black. I thought it might be running real rich. But she just took it to the Honda dealer this morning and they said everthing was fine. My brother has the same tires on his Passat and he has no loss of mpgs with them. I am puzzled too. I fwe come up with something I will get back to you.

The original Bridgestone's on my 08 returned a little under 40 mpg. The replacement Yokohama Envigor and now Kumho Ecsta 4x barely get 35mpg. The oem tires were crap, but the mileage could not be beat.
