Took my first longer highway trip yesterday. 420 km/260 miles with some minor in-town at each end. Fuel consumption in my AWD Highline/SEL was better than expected. Averaged 7.0L/100km or 33.6 miles per US gallon. Majority of speed was 120-120kmh/ 75mph with a few areas down to 80/50 for construction. Impressed. How’s everybody else finding fuel consumption? Better than advertised?

Couple tanks through my Taos already. It's been hotter than hell here, so I've had the AC on the whole time, as well as mainly city driving. Fulio is reporting 24.193.

I'm sure once the temp drops a little, and I start to put on some highway miles, that'll increase

Mines have been averaging 38-40mpg. I wonder if putting it in S mode will change that because it does feel more responsive and putting it in s mode was one of the options of combating the junk throttle response.
