Ehmmmm Pee Gee, Ho Lee Mow Lee

Pensacola - Orlando in my 07 SLK350, fairly heavy Memorial Day traffic. Surpassed EPA published MPG figures. Anyone else getting these numbers?

I got around 24 mpg from Cincinnati to Louisville, but there was minimal traffic.

I've got an SLK 280, and a recent 485-mile (US measurement) weekend trip saw a 31.5mpg trip average and the "instant" mpg often topping 33mpg on cruise at 65. Very impressive, in my book...beats my W202 C230 handily.
