Gas Guage needle drops fast

With winter blend gas,warmups and a little,very little playing with the SC,I'm getting about 16.5-17 MPG combo city and hwy driving.
I would think I'll get maybe another 1-1.5 MPG when the weather warms up.
I notice the fuel gauge needle drops from full to half pretty fast.Like in a 125 miles.
Just looks like I'm burning more gas than I am.
Anybody else feel the needle drops from full pretty fast?

I find mine is pretty steady. I only drive about 10 miles a day locally during the week though.
