Typical response by a dealer who is responsible for warranty work. I would think about finding someone else to work on the car and only taking it to the dealer when a warranty repair is needed.

Fuel miliage doesn't get chopped in half from gasoline.

I'd press the service manager harder on this.

Things that can affect fuel mileage that may be part of your problem is longer warm up periods if you are in a cold climate. air pressures in tires, although the TPMS should alert you or drag on the wheels like a e-brake on.
