Gas Mileage drop

I have a 2006 mercury mountaineer awd v8 which up until a few weeks ago would be able to get 22 mpg highway. I have noticed that recently it has been around 17 mpg at the same speed. Could all of this be blamed on winter gas blend, or is there more to my problem?

Re: Gas Mileage drop

Probably a combination of winter fuel and colder temps , longer warm up times and other associated factors .
