Keep trying!

This was in the 2014 Mirage press vehicle I got to try out:

(Thread: Review notes: I've got a 2014 Mirage 1.2L 3-cyl 5-speed for a week. Any questions? )

That was for an actual round trip of about 12 km on a warm engine in quiet sub/urban conditions.

And I also believe the Mirage's computer vastly under-reports mileage when you do a lot of engine-off coasting using the key -- needs a kill switch for better accuracy. Actual MPG was probably quite a bit better than indicated.
