Hey I have a 2001 tib, and have just recently been getting crap for fuel economy. I have a feeling it has to do with the front end alignment, the snow, and having to let my car warm up for 5mins atleast 4 times a day. I'm not sure though, thats why I posted. Would those aformentioned things reduce my fuel economy that much?

Yes

Front End Alignment will cause extra drag and not only tear your tires up but cause bad gas mileage

Cold weather, esp with a heavy foot can cause a loss of mileage. Cold Air = More dense so the ecu will push more fuel to keep the air/fuel ratio right. Notice extra power when its cold? Thats the basis for those stupid ebay resistor things. They dont work if you dont have the cold air or more air.

The warm up will hurt you when comparing you warm weather gas mileage vs. cold weather gas mileage but if you start driving it before the warm up it ll take more out of your wallet. Keep the warm up routine.

Also check you tire pressure.
