There are a few reasons why I think I am getting better MPG around town:
1- Less fuel use all around. I am idling for most of the around town driving. SC II is always showing 120 to 300 MPG.
2- Most of my speeds getting to the highway are under 45 MPH. I am not fighting drag or keeping a constant speed like that of the highway.
3- With cruise control on, SC II reports about 55 to 62 MPG depending on conditions on level ground going 70 MPH. Much of my highway travel is hilly.
The one area where I can control frictional forces and FE is around town. So I think I am getting better MPG around town. Now I just need to find some coroplast or ABS plastic to block the grille, It is harder to find than I thought.
