The EPA estimates and manufacturers' are a good barometer BUT, what MPG/MPL did you really get on your last tank of fuel?

2010 Toyota Prius III with E10 87 octane regular gas
59.95 MPG over 547 miles/9.124 gallons

It's a bit higher than normal because I'm hypermiling and because the weather has gotten nicer recently.. my average fuel efficiency for April over the last 4 years is 60 mpg so my fuel efficiency for this April is slightly under par.

2010 MB GL350 Bluetec EPA est. 19 city 26 hwy Actual 23 city 31 hwy

Diesel MPG est have been historically underrated by the EPA because the conditions during diesel testing are vastly different from real world driving. For the gasoline engine, they drive on a dynamometer, basically a flat terrain, and control throttle(air intake) variability. For diesel testing, this is the poorest condition because diesel engines don't use a throttle, they vary the fuel injection.
