The reason I ask...the tank should last longer than 300 miles so I'm wondering how you calculated.

My (albeit very unscientific) method is to fill the tank all the way, until it won't take any more and reset the trip odometer. I then wait until I get really close to empty and refill all the way again. I then divide the trip odometer number by the exact amount it took to fill the tank.

I am not expecting gas mileage miracles, but it would be nice to average 35 mpg. I do about 70% highway and 30% city. I am wondering how much the high revs at 80 mph will hurt my highway numbers. That will be a seperate test down the line, once the car has about 5000 or 6000 miles on it.
This is how I figure mine as well or by taking the last receipt and current to calculate exactly how many gallons were used divided by the mileage. I am averaging between 35-40mpg mostly highway driving at speed limits (sometimes a little over on highways ) Lately I noticed a little less power to get up and go which I assume is spark plugs as all maintenance, new tires and shocks were done. I tried to change the spark plugs but the screw holding the tower on, #1 was tight all the way out, #2 snapped the head off and I had to drill it out and use a bigger screw with a nut so I didn't attempt #3 and #4 and just left it like it was. So I bet the plugs are original to 2008.

10.5 liters per 100 km ? According to this calculator, that comes out to 27mpg. Pretty bad, in other words. My 2011 MT Fit Sport gets about 36mpg (7.8 liters per 100km) in combined driving.

I stand corrected. My 36mpg is an outlier according to fueleconomy.gov -- the 2011 Fit is rated at 29 mpg in combined driving.

This is what I have been averaging lately. AC on, spirited back road driving along with idling at work before I start. Went on a highway trip and reset the gauge and it was up around 32 with AC on. I don’t track my MPG I just drive the car but when I wasn’t using the AC my average was above 30 when I would think about looking at it.
