Yeah, I know, thats why IU wanted to clarify the route. It was still a disappointment compared to the Mazda3, which was rated for 24/32, I got dead in the middle on the same commute. This car was 28/38. So it's at least it's now approaching the lower spectrum. It definitely improves on highway. When I picked it up from the dealer (1st free service), that was a 15mile highway stretch, going 70ish, I saw it go up to 31mpg.
I've got a baby due any day now, so I won't have much highway stuff anytime soon, but I am expecting the highway trips to be where the savings where. Should have gotten the Prius C for the short commute!
