No on the wheels, I have OEM style 44's (shown in my sig), but I am about to do the CCV kit update. Is it possible my clogged up CCV system could cause MPG issues? I have no vacuum leaks, but I know my CCV system is totaled, I can see it and smell the burnt oil. BTW, I'm also doing the valve cover gasket and OFHG to rule out any of the other common oil leaks.

I do have a Yakima/Thule roof rack with a wind deflector, but my mileage was the same before I added that on.
