My readout for MPG average over the last 10000 miles or so is 18.8. I probably drive 75% trips under 20 miles. It goes up to 22-24 at steady highway speeds (73-75 mph), so I assume it is closer to 17-18 on the shorter trips (whatever the math works out to). Regular fuel (as manual suggests).
80K miles. I bought it at 37K miles, and the readout was 19.8 - I assume that driver did more highway driving.
I'm surprised it is so different from the post above.

For 100% the Interstate highway driving, it is about 22MPG.
For the City driving (In Portland, OR, not so bad traffic), average trip length is 7 miles, the MPG is about 16 to 17. The car is now at 48500 miles on odo.
#5 of 22 wrong car! oops!

I reset my mileage history for a trip from Woodstock, NY to Niagara Falls, Ontario and back - about 760 miles. Very significant 73-74mph highway driving sections (say 350 of the 380 miles each way). Tires at 33-35 lbs, air on, windows closed. Some local stop and go, and a 25 minute sit in US customs line. Versus my long term average reported above of 18.8, I averaged 20.8 for this trip. Still regular fuel.
