Yes, 1M was the same way, great mileage if you drove it mellow but if you got into it, the mileage drops fast! that's one of the fallacies about turbo motors....the mileage is much better if you buy a sports car and drive it like a prius but if you drive it like a sports car, the mileage benefit is not as good and in the meantime you have given up amazing sound, high revving, instant throttle response for lag and "heat soak'"
