I get about 15 to 16 mpg in the city (including traffic clogged city highways) and 22 to 25 on the interstate, depending on conditions. I drive fairly aggressively and seldom use eco mode. I have noticed that using pure gasoline instead of the usual 10% ethanol swill gets me about a 1 to 1.5 mpg boost. I keep my tires inflated to 33 psi front and 35 psi rear, which is higher that the 31 psi front and rear recommended on the placard because I find I get better handling. The higher pressure may improve fuel economy slightly as well.

A lot will depend on where you are driving and other things. Traffic, hills, poorly timed lights, poorly maintained roads, ethanol in the gas, weather, tire inflation, the type and weight of oil the the crank case and other variables will all work to affect fuel economy.
