23.8mpg now on 93octane Shell V-Power?

Granted I drive with a lead foot, but is this normal?

Mostly in town? Lots of stop and start with "enthusiastic" acceleration?
That describes my local drives and the mileage I get when I have few highway miles on a tank of gas.
I'd call that "normal".
FYI, highway trips cruising at 70 -- 80 mph gets well over 30 mpg in the same car.

Yeah, it's most likely because I love the G force this thing offers. I can't keep my foot off the gas

My dealership said additives in gasoline during the winter decrease mileage by about 7mpg? He said MPG improves in summer?

First time I've heard this. Anyone else ever heard of this?

Sounds about right. I think I have heard that gasoline is different during the winter. All I know is that my mileage during the winter was like 23/24 and now it's like 26/27. Mostly city ish driving though.
