I should add that these are most likely at standard atmospheric conditions (standard air density, temp), no head wind, steady state (no on/off throttle), not accounting for rich period during warm up and acceleration, etc.. So, without a lot of warm up, head wind, and some pulse and glide, you should be able to exceed numbers for your vehicle...

I started making some horsepower loss curves for my cars and was going to do figure out how to translate it to mpg, and came across that site that did all that already.
