During cold weather, gas mileage will take a dive. I would also recommend re-setting your "trip timer" with each fill up. In my wife's escape, I usually find that when I look at the trip timer or engine timer, I discover that the car while only have travelled a relatively short distance, it has been running for 9 - 10 hours on that tank of gas. During winter, the car, especially with remote start, will idle for long periods of time while warming up and de-icing. Winter tires will decrease gas mileage as Will driving a car that has a foot of snow on it.
We have been pleased with the mileage on the 2.0 ecoboost, which averages about 1 litre more per 100 Kms than my 08 Saturn Aura did, but is AWD, and has 50 more horsepower getting about 9.3 litres/ 100 Km while driving at 120 km/hr.
