Well, from my experience anyway, for what it's worth!
For example, my EPA is something like 3.5L/100k. If i beat it by 50% i would be getting something like 1.75L/100k, clearly crazy figures! Now, i can do about 2L/100k on the straight and level but that doesn't count for much.

Still, i'm using very little fuel overall so i can't complain!
Another interesting fact is that you can beat the EPA by way over 100% if measured in mpg but in l/100km it will be difficult. This is the first time ever I preferred non metric.
