Gas mileage

When I fill up my tank does not burp it lets the hose spill gas everywhere. So the dealer is replacing my tank d/t a faulty vent. My question is will this improve my sucky gas mileage?
It seems that it's getting worse

+1. Winter blend gas, warm ups, stop and go, 4WD, all add up to sucky gas mileage during the cold winter months.

I think its more a warranty extension than a recall for the fuel tank

Best I got was 21mpg worst 11mpg,

I always seem to get my worst mpg when I use Hess Gas anyone else here experience the same thing.

When you get knee-deep in a situation, floor it.

I use them both and haven't noticed any real difference in mileage. I use Hess more because it's the same price per gallon cash or credit.

With both vehicles I owned, I seemed to burn through Hess gas. Stopped using it for that reason. Last time I used it, I had a gift card lol
