If it is that cold out, your tires should be 36 PSI when you start your car. When you get temperature swings as great as that, this is where nitro is so much better... unless you are like me and have a compressor at home and don't mind adding or removing air as the temp changes.

I average about 28.9 to 31.00 if I recall correctly. I was on 280 on a decline/downward drive, kept it in Neutral (hyper drive) and I went all the way to 94.2 MPG....I was laughing at that point

Stock wheels and tires are your problem. Get lighter 20's or smaller with good tires (Goodyear, Michelin, etc) and it'll help.
