Are you guys going by the on-board mileage readout? Because according to mine I've been averaging around 37-39 mpg highway and low 40's when on a side road holding an even 80 km/h.

It's been proven that the screen in the car reads 3-4 mpg high. (US at least) Mine has mostly read 35-38 mpg but when manually calculated it ends up being 32-34. Here's all of my fill ups since I bought the car:

123 miles, 70 mph on mixed two-lane mountain roads - 38 on computer, 37.6 measured. Return trip was 37 mpg.
121 miles at 83 mph, steady. Elevation change from 3,300 to 5,700 feet. 30 mph winds and on snow tires. 28 mpg.
City driving with idle for warmup and fairly regular ice-scraping: 26-28mpg.
Overall, it is much better than the sticker.
