About 23 MPG. Mostly city miles in dynamic mode. And that's my calculation, not the vehicle-reported value.

I'm consistently 23 regardless of how I drive. I try coasting to a stop, I try being light on the throttle. I try switching between Comfort and Dynamic modes. Once I got it to read 25 on a 2 hour pure highway drive, but I'm fairly disappointed in the gas mileage not reaching the claimed highway rating.

Not to “one up” but I got 7.0l/100km last weekend which is just over 33MPG. I had it in Eco mode and kept at the speed limit for a 2 hour journey.

Anyone notice the gauge claiming how many miles you have left to empty is useless? One day it will say I have 270 miles and the next day it will increase to 320. Then it will go down again an hour or so later. Also not getting better than 25 mpg.

Happens in my car several times (the fluctuation of miles to empty).

This fluctuation is normal and expected. It is calculating the mileage until empty based on the actual driving conditions you are having. If you are running around town with a lot of stop and go acceleration the miles to empty will be less based on the lower MPG during this time. If you go on a freeway at a more steady state the miles until empty will adjust higher based on improved MPG. It is calculating this number based on actual operating conditions not the average so you have the most reliable information at that time. If it did not do this you would be getting an inaccurate distance that could show that you are able to drive farther than you actually can and that would not be good.

Elevation is also a factor. I do experience this daily even for a little change of elevation. And if you live in LA, this is expected.

Just now at 5,000+ miles, upped MPG to 29.0. Probably 75% highway driving, non-aggressive, ECO mode if/when I remember. Mileage when new was quite a bit lower.

I’ve noticed my mileage improving over the last couple months. I think it’s tied to the weather; when the temperature was below freezing I rarely saw anything over 23mpg, but now that it’s getting up into the 50s and 60s I’m seeing 27 or 28mpg on trips.
