I like to mention 60 mpg, which is my 1-year average. This is what I get, in real-world driving. The only reason the lifetime log is lower is that it includes my time spent learning hypermiling.

I might also mention that I've had segments up to 85 in controlled conditions.

I usually tell people the average mpg I get, which falls between 40 and 41 pretty religiously.

Though at the same time I wouldnt feel dishonest telling people the highway mileage only, since thats all the car companies advertise anyway. (I also find it hilarious that they advertise 35 mpg highway as "great" mileage)

I tell them what Id been getting at the time both to work and back, and downstate and back, since they vary quite a bit. And I say compared to what I used to get in both cases before I started really trying, which was a consistent 29 and 32.

Summer is the only time anyone I know here tries to improve efficiency. Wintertime you pretty much do what youve gotta do to make it through. I have been trying to get the wagon more efficient but success is very limited in winter, and the mods that can handle winter are also limited.
