Could it be imperial gallons? That would make somewhat of a difference.

The Day I took over my car the temp drop to -30 degree Celcius. I have been warming my car a lot and the block heater is plug in when car is not driving. I just filled gas after 15 days of city driving. I got 470Km out of 42 Liter of gas. About 31MPG.

OBYmagnus.. Lets get the facts straight. I drive E V E R Y week from phoenix to Orange county, and back again for work. With my 03 camry my highest ever mpg was 40.058, a much bigger car, can Highonreef get 45.1? Absolutely. Let me explain Los Angeles to Palm springs is primarily downhill , at least 60 % downhill. its the exact freeway i use when i did the 40.058 in the camry, Were at sea level, cars breathe easier. If i can get 40.. he can get 45.. i currently do this trip with my 2000 jetta tdi... 80 mph =43 mpg... but 65 mph = 68.7 (my best tank ever) . And he did his 45.1 67 exactly where my camry and jetta get their best Mpg. Come to sea level and try it for yourself, I gurantee you'll hit mid 40's with a corolla.

I don't think downhill gas mileage is what we're really trying to compare of this thread. "Real World MPG" would lead me to believe average mpg. at an average speed, not 80 mph. I don't believe cars are like humans and breathe easier at lower altitudes either, is there any factual evidence to back this up?

If you read his thread, highonreef stated he went both directions. from Los Angeles to Palm springs and back again. So his gas mileage was an average of both up and downhill. Obviously theres alot you dont know beside what Air will do at sea level.... Ask car and driver or road and track. They'll both tell you its true. my cars are all faster 0 to 60 in calif then they are in Phoenix. Another thing you dont know about calif. EVERYBODY drives 80 mph on the freeways, lol. I do that speed all the way to phoenix EVERY week. and i might add get passed up by several caravans of cars at that speed. So i'm not sure where you live, but this IS our real world, these are our averages in both mpg and Speed. Youd dont drive that fast in so calif. you'll get run off the road.

If anything gas mileage will be lower at sea level because there's more wind resistance.
However the higher air density will allow the engine to "breathe easier" with more power available.

Less power due to thinner air at higher elevations, but thinner air equals less wind resistance and better mpg at higher elevations.

I'm getting 39.1 average for the last 3200+ miles/2 months combined city/highway. I'm impressed!

Wow, that is awesome! My driving is split evenly between highway and city and I never can't get better than 25 mpg with my 2009 Corolla XLE; but just on the highway I can top 40 mpg. I've had many Corollas and my top combined mpg. seems to always be around 25 mpg. I love all Toyotas but especially my Corollas. Some day I hope to see either a convertible or a plug in Corolla. In the mean time I just drive my "91" Miata when I want to go "Top Down".
