The wife gets about $90 a year (from Kia) for the overestimate of MPG on her 2012 Sorento. The sticker said 32 highway, now they dropped it to 29 highway. Some Hyundai and Kia models were worse. I could get 32 but only under conditions where my Fiesta (rated at 38 highway) would get over 50.

I can usually meet or beat the top numbers on fuelly, if those numbers are real. Those that do better than my self, on fuelly, are either wrong or drive-ride at slower average speeds. My average speed is high 30s to mid 40s or more on road trips. I have averaged 70 MPH on a few trips without fuel or food stops.
