Wheels vs. Wheels / fuel consumption

I did a little experiment to see what the difference in fuel consumption is using the original and pimp wheels.

7.17ltr/100Km - 195/40/17 Team Dynamics Jet black Hankook Summer tyres.
5.38ltr/100Km - 155/65/14 Original steal wheels Nokian Winter tyres.

As you can see, the difference is noticeable in the amount of road you can cover on one tank and how full your wallet will be when you reach the end of your trip.

I did not change my driving style and I think there is more room for improvement in tyres (summer tyres), standard ECU, manifold, exhaust and a more tree loving right foot. First and last one might be key.
