True - and probably true of any car. I managed 35.2 mpg on my recent trip home from the airport. However, the displayed average never even reached the 20 mark until after I cleared the surface streets and had logged ten miles or so of highway driving.

Once on the highway, my average climbed steadily until it settled into a more or less steady state near 35. I was purposely driving for mileage on that trip - keeping my speed down, accelerating slowly, trying not to vary my speed much.
