That is much better at around 26.5 mpg. that is not unreasonable at all. The a/c on this car is very efficient so the mileage numbers will change very little if even noticeable. Use of cruise control and highway driving makes a much bigger difference.

Filled up yesterday and on a brim to brim test I returned 49mpg, not bad for a gasoline engine, 22000 miles done now, best ever figure on a tankful.

I started off getting about 9L/100kms (31 MPG IMP) around town when the cars was new but the mileage got progressively better and better. I think it was about 5,000 kms or so before it stopped improving, and I now average 7.8L/100kms (31 MPG IMP).

Exactly right. There's an investigative journalism program on one of our Canadian networks that did a major report on this very topic a few years ago. It turned out that about 90% of the people they talked to at the pumps who used premium fuel knew that premium wasn't required in their car, but they used it anyway assuming that their car would either run better, get better mileage, get more power or that it was better for the environment. But engineers, mechanics and even the auto manufacturers themselves say that there is absolutely zero benefit to using premium in a car that was designed to run regular. And in fact, they were even able to show that in some cases the use of premium is actually worse for the environment if the car wasn't designed for it.
