Question Poor Mileage?

I am getting REALLY crappy mileage (15-16 cty 20-21 hwy). Peninsula Subaru keeps trying to tell me it's because of the winter gas formula. I explained that a couple other WRX owners who fill up at the exact same gas stations I do get 20+ mpg around town... and the guy told me to try running 89 octane gas in my car.

Problem is, I get the same poor gas mileage whether I drive "spirited" or "granny". Is anybody else experienceing this problem? My car also stops pulling hard (it feels like the boost is turned off and I'm back to N/A) at around 5200 rpm.

Glenn, could you make this sticky for a few days so I can see if others are having this problem?

Thanks in advance,
