Well mine reads in kilometers, and don't seem to get better then 12-13 litters per 100km in the city and 11 or so hwy. I try and always shift below or at 3000rpm to keep it mellow. Overall, even just my last tank fuel economy got worse only getting 375km until the fuel light from a full tank premium 91 shell (try and only use minimal ethenol fuels).

It's still early at only 2500km total since new but doubt will get much better. Definitely wouldn't call that fuel efficient but it is what it is and I'm not complaining just would be nice to have a capable engine with that kind of consumption. Hopefully reliability will be this cars strong suit 😜
