Drives around in the western part of Sweden, hilly area, car used in city as well as out in the forests. I live about 200 meters above sea level, don't know how much that effects fuel consumption.
I use the cars odometer and the fuel stations volume assessment to calculate fuel consumption, not the most accurate, but it gives ball park figures and tells me if I'm going in the right directions or not.
Running 95 RON octane, lowest pump octane in Sweden. Equals roughly 91 MON(U.S) octane.

2023-01-25: Broke my left arm and damaged my right hand fingers in an accident with a drill press. Lousy carousel, do not recommend. Can't drive or tinker for a while, but my mother borrows my car during this time. Will be interesting to see how another driver affects MPG.
