It's not that people here, me included, do not believe you. It is just that it is rare to get that gas mileage with a 2L as I mentioned earlier. I have briefly hit 6.9L/100km. (34.34mpg. US) according to the dash display, whilst driving mainly on the highway but could not maintain it.We borrowed, then bought one. The road trip will tell us what mpg it will get, which is 35mpg. It bothers me when people refuse to believe when someone posts mpg numbers higher than theirs. Just because I don't treat every stoplight like a drag race and go 90mph doesn't mean I don't get those numbers. This was in a 55mph area (it's all 55 up here) , but very hilly with the ac blasting
If you can average 35mpg. on your highway trip then that's great and good luck to you. You obviously know how to get the best out of your SUV and I wish you well .
