Summer, driving normally (or somewhat nicely), around 18/19 ish.

(That's in mostly rural conditions. Longer stretches of road (not highway, but not that slow either) with a few stops, paired with a few lights before my destination.)

A highway run, holding a hair below 80 most the way, it'll be in the lower 20's.

The MPG is not great, but it's not bad either.
My parent's honda odyssey gets the same mileage pump-to-pump.
Plenty of pickup trucks with less MPG.
I'm 'ok' with the mileage, so long as the car is fast.
If it was a slow car with this MPG, I'd feel like it's wasting fuel.

It's worth mentioning that the 2012 has improved both in power, and [a little] in MPG.
