I used A/C to defog the wind screen this morning, but no heat until the engine neared the spill point of the radiator valve. I did not heat my car; I made it colder!
But it wasn't very cold today...

Yes! Or when your vehicle goes over the speed limit for the first time since you've owned the car. (except for coasting down hills)

Your fuel consumption is too low to convert at sites like this one: Fuel consumption conversion table

We recently got back from a trip with 2.8 l/100km, over 400km. That breaks the magical 100 mpg(imp) barrier
Now I need to attack the 100 mpg(US) target.
