I'm using 93 and get 28/29 mpg per computer average per tank. Mostly near sea - level driving, 80‰ highway. Current tank 3/4 full showing 31.2 pulling into driveway this evening with A/C. Too lazy to do math, but overall range per tank is roughly right. Reset mpg/trip odo after every fill-up.

I do try to look ahead and anticipate slowdowns to reduce accelerator needs without being a traffic blocker. Paddles are useful for this without lighting up taillights. Also, it is amazing how little throttle input is needed to maintain highway speeds. The 2 liter gives good mileage off boost even when moving a 3700lb brick through the air.
