Ok, since the mysterious and supposedly unobtainable 40mpg is such a hot topic, I'm starting the 40+ Club! :-)
This thread is for those that HAVE gotten 40mpg (5.9L/100Km) or better. If the you have gotten 40+ please report in the conditions you achieved it, so that others can see.
Since its my thread I will go first.
I am on a road trip currently going from my home in Dayton Pa to Poplar Bluff Mo to Siloam Springs Ar and back. Mostly highway at 60-70mph, using the AC about 50% of the time, no cruise control, light winds from all directions, and a little bit of city driving at each location. My fill ups over this trip so far have been 42.1, 45, 41.2, and 40 all hand calculated in order of fill up.
I am hoping to have two more tanks over 40 as I drive home tomorrow.
I think criteria A) is the most accurate way. My old Nissan Sentra was rated on edmunds to get 32mpg on the highway and I was calculating 32mpg every time I filled up. Whereas, my accent will say I averaged 40.5mpg, but I calculated it at 38mpg between fillups. So, we need to clarify on what qualifies as achieving true 40+mpg
