Most of us Europeans use numbers from the ECE fuel consumption test cycle (harder to beat than the American EPA numbers - those Americans got it easy...). If that's not available, and you can't find any other 'official' numbers, then go to sites like, look at the average fuel consumption for cars like yours (make, model, trim, engine, gearbox, etc.), and use that as your 'official' average.
