Just got back from a 1800 mile drive in my Kona SEL and was surprised to find
34.5 mpg on the highway. FYI I was driving in cruise control mode at 80 mph most of the time
from Florida to Atlanta Georgia to coastal Georgia and back to Florida. Other times I was in
cruise control at 55-65 mph.

That was with the heater running as it was pretty cold. I noticed with the AC running it was getting about 31 mpg. Would also like to note that I found the seats extremely comfortable for 90% of the entire road trip.

And if its any help to others: the Continental Extreme Contact DWS06 tires were superb. (replaced the OEMs)

I had similar results over the summer. My father and I took a day trip, around 220 miles round trip of mostly highways. We stopped to fill up before making the journey home, and I got 34.5mpg on that half-tank. Better fuel economy than I got on the '14 Forte this car replaced

I average 37.93 - 36.75 MPG on highway trips.
36.75 if using AC and 37.93 MPG without (Translating to 6.2L\100 and 6.4L\100)

It's better than the smaller car it replaced.

that is amazing mpg. I thought the vehicle was rated at 32 hway. Do I remember right or not?
No matter near 38 mpg for an SUV albeit a sub compact one that is really a raised hatchback :)

is this what the car is saying or hand calculated?
On Our 98 Octane (93 RON for you Americans) the trip computer and calculations are very, very close.
I usually calculate by hand and compare it to the car, I always fill to the first click at my local service station. (BP)

On our 91-94 Octane (87 RON) E10 fuel... the trip computer is wildly inaccurate and differs hugely.

Will still show 6.2-6.4L/100 for my usual trip up the coast and have really used 6.6-7L/100

Our fuel prices are down to reasonable levels right now, so 98 octane fuel is back in use (at about $4.14 A Gallon at todays rates)

On my hand calculations I've seen it go into the 40s, and that was driving around a high elevation national park, not on flat land, lol. So it does get pretty efficient. This is with the 2.0l engine and 87 octane fuel.
