I filled up yesterday, and then drove a 400km round trip. Despite a lengthy highway traffic jam (stop and go, took about 30 minutes to travel 2 km or so), most of the trip was between 80 and 110km/h in 5th, with occasional slowdowns when passing through residential areas, leaving me with an average for the day of 6.3L/100km, or around 37-38mpg. I wasn't driving with maximum efficiency in mind, either. Call me satisfied. I think with smooth and trouble-free highway driving, I could break 40mpg easily.
