Traction Assist changing mpg?

Well, I have noticed that I have been driving with traction assist on for quite a while, and I was wondering if this will change the mpg. Meaning decrease it. I think it may, but it doesn't say it in the car manual. Although it does say that the traction assist automatically turns off when the car is going over 35mph. But I live in a local area and dont have the car going much over 35 alot, since i live right in the middle of town, and my work is about 3 miles away. I usually dont drive much as I want to keep this car in tip-top shape. If anyone has any information on what I have asked that would be wonderful.

I have made a topic about my P0174 error message, system too lean(bank 2).
here: ANOTHER NEW GUY! Need Help ASAP! and I know that decreases mpg.

Re: Traction Assist changing mpg?

I thought that as well when I first picked up my car. So I fueled up and turned it off everytime that I got in and went somewhere. If it added any extra MPGs or fractions of it, it wasnt anything that would really save you money or notice
