I've reached that a few times, but only while using the cruise on a long trip on the interstate. Around town, any stop and go, and the weight of the vehicle is going against you - while it doesn't take all that much to keep going, it certainly does to get it there. And, anything much over 70mph, and you'll likely never reach that figure. Remember, the EPA test are run at lower speeds, and low, constant speeds are good for mileage on any vehicle. Also, you likely won't reach that in the wintertime. A more 'normal' mileage for me (I have an x-drive, which is lower than your rear-wheel drive vehicle) is 26-28 on a trip. Winter tires and bad weather affect things.
