how many miles do you have? Hows your air clear? Did you change your spark plugs at 30,000?

I just hit the same... 32K and my mileage went to shit! 13 city and 15-16 highway on last three tanks. Actually has me thinking why not drive a full size??? Really, the plugs need replaced at 30K? This one has me interested.

If you have to pull them to re-gap them at 30,000mi, might as well just replace them.

Expensive multi-tip platinum wonders are a bit of a waste on these engines.

Change your plugs John. Make sure the new ones are gapped at .040-.043,and go with the stock plugs.platinum won't do anything for these motors....and unless you are sc'd.....the iridiums won't either.
