I'll weigh in...re my 2015 XT, owned since Sept 2014.
I've just turned the clock on 35,000 and religiously track using Fuelly.
Average is 23.4 mpg.
Best is 26.8...all-highway multi-day road trip.
Worst is 19.8...heavy traffic in a snowstorm!
65% city driving/35% highway.
Daily commute is <6 miles each way.
Mostly use S...rarely use S#, though I do have a heavy foot...LOVE the turbo!
Always use premium, usually 93 octane, from the local QuickChek, which is very busy so its always fresh.
Usually fill up right around when the low-fuel light comes on, with say 50 miles remaining...because I find the gauge to be, let's call it 'speculative'...same with computer mpg calc...I'd say around 2 mpg optimistic.
