Is that calculated or based on the average readout on the dashboard? The reason I ask is that my car is incredibly inaccurate. On my last all highway trip the average MPG was reporting 40.2, but hand calculated came out to 35.8 - which is nowhere close. My experience has been that the average MPG readout is inaccurate.
