Update again:
Both Elantras have a total, 120,000 miles with nothing wrong with either one. With another Hyundai (different model), I expect they all will cruise to 200,000 miles each, with little effort..... & our mechanic will still be unable to remember my name.

Bought a 2017 Elantra for one of my daughters to drive. Anything over 10 miles 45 mpg indicated is as easy as setting the cruise at 55. The 3 days I drove it to work 52 indicated, 49 calculated on a short tank.

Yeah, about 6% difference (I assume you used 87 octane E10). If you had used 87 octane 100% ethanol-free E0, your MPG might have been 52 indicated, 52 calculated. Our two Elantras tend to give more accurate car computer to pencil/paper results burning E0, compared to using (not burning efficiently) E10.
