Just did my figures and for my first two tanks of fuel in my brand new v6 optima both came in at just over 29 mpg or 10.3 km/ltr.. 75 % highway at 100 kmh , the rest stop start traffic.
Very happy with that

Two weeks ago Wagga to Canberra 234 ks undulating country.7.27 Temp that day 44.6degs both trips full air con on. It's all in your right foot.

In Aus you can achivegood economy and I feel www.greenvehicleguide.gov.au is very good on most reports.
well the optima has now down 7500 km and the fuel economy has steadily improved since new . Cosistently averaging around 12 km / litre combined driving with airconditioning on . Pretty happy with that !!!
Well, with a current switch of gas brands from Mobil to Texaco, I've seen a noticable increase in MPG. On a full tank with Mobil's 87 I was getting around 16.7MPG or 250 Miles/Full Tank Mixed driving. Now with the switch to Texaco 87, went to 21.7 - 22MPG (325-330 Miles/full tank). Now with this fill up I used LUCAS Fuel Injection & System Cleaner, so I'll see if there will be another improvement. I'll keep you informed! :thumbsup:
Just wanted to share. :grin:
