Litres/100km is the most logic way, at least in my opinion.
Where does this miles per gallon come originally?
It's more helpful than hogsheads per furlong?

People complained that cars didn't get anywhere near the rated fuel economy. So EPA tweaked their numbers buy running the CAFE numbers through an equation to get a more realistic number. It was still high and people still complained. This cycle has repeated over the past 4 decades so that today the combined fuel economy on the window sticker is about 25% lower than CAFE.
The tyranny of low expectations.
