I'd be driving a Prius if I took my friends' advice.
Milage is a touchy item with our car, it all depends (as you well know) how we drive our car.

I made across country trip this summer (on a project ... could not leave my new acquisition covered up in the garage), I managed to get 10.9 to 11.1 L/100 KM ... I think that is nearing 21 Miles per US Gallon ... drove 10% above speed limits on the highway (mostly US side) the split for the trip I figure was around 90% Highway and 10% towns and city driving some 7,000 KM round trip. Not bad for a sports car
