Why are these in your list? I don't see any other winter tires.

That's about what I get with ours with highway driving. As for city driving, like any other hybrid or even non-hybrid how one drives has an impact. I tend to have a lead foot which doesn't help.

I have no idea if the manual changed over time but many vehicles designed for higher octane can run on lower octane but that's generally as a temporary measure. I've always run 91+ in our RX 400h...
