Reset the mpg readout as soon as you enter the HWY.

I guarantee you 35mpg or more.
This should set your mind at ease.

You cannot live in the city yet expect great fuel economy. You need to be in top gear 100% of the time for great mpg.
that's exactly what I was planning to do - travelling from Montreal to Ottawa over the weekend, however 4 adults in the car!
