Another thing to consider is a roof rack and/or attachments. I have a MY05 OBS with a Yakima rack and a snowboard attachment. With just the rack, I see my mileage decrease from 28 mpg avg. to 24 mpg avg. (a lot of highway miles). With the rack and snowboard attachment, I see my mileage decrease from 28 mpg avg. all the way down to about 20 mpg avg. My point is this: if you have a rack, and the car needs a tune-up, I could easily see only 17 mpg.
