    Bought new 2020 XLE in Aug. Mileage has gone from mid 50s to mid 40s. Same settings and driving pattern. Any ideas?

    Outside temperature, tyre pressure (related to outside temperature), switch to winter blend fuel at your local gas station.

    Tire inflation and/ or water in the gas. Use some dry gas for a cleaner burn
