I have to remind myself that a US gallon is less than an Imperial (i.e. UK/Australian) gallon (4.54609 litres - a US gallon is 3.785411784 litres) .... not that we talk in gallons anymore, but I'm showing my age by stating that I relate better to miles per gallon that I do litres per 100 km. I got 30.3 mpg at an average speed of 101 km/h (say 60 mph) on a run from Melbourne to Adelaide, which I think is pretty good for nearly two tonnes of car. So our US brethren are not necessarily heavier on the loud pedal, they just appear to get worse mileage than we do, as 21.5 US MPG = 25.8 AUS MPG. Hang on - they DO get worse mileage than we do!
