Our last gen ML was capable of low 30's on the highway so it wouldn't surprise me if the new one was even better. Speed limit is only 90 km/hr in the National Parks up here and if you go in the 90-100 km/hr range it would get those numbers.

We got an average of 29 mpg yesterday in the X5 doing the same drive over about a 300 km stretch.
