I drive a TI sedan. In city stop and go driving I can granny it as low as 6.5 to 7, or driving agressively up to 10 or 11. Accelleration and anticipated stops are key. To max your city milage:
- get off the gas way early and coast into your stop.
- accelerate SLOWLY keeping rpm low.

To max highway milage stay steady at about 80 km/h

Reset your trip meter to get a fairly live reading of your milage for about 25k after reset.

This car can be driven to great milage though it takes some 'focus'.
