But I don't know, I just can't see wheels having that big of an impact of MPG (Not to say that it doesnt affect MPG because it can), there has to be something else going on. That's all I have to say.
My mpg before the change is right on with the published average mpg for legacy 2.5i (mixed highway and city driving), and the only change is the 19inch wheel. Maybe my wheel/tire combination is really heavy One of these days, I will try to weight my wheel. I already know my 19inch rim weighs about 10-11kg. It seems like they don't normally publish tire weight. So we will know for sure the difference between my OEM and my new setup. If the tire is really heavy, at least in the future, we won't get the same tire again.

Thanks for sharing your experience, at least we knew it still depending on each setup. May I know what's fuel consumption before?
