I commented as you did, but apparently was not logged in. At any rate, I drive a turbo 2.0L now, and I get 24-25 MPG with a 2/3 split of city/highway driving, which is under the average on the sticker, but when I first got the car, I tested the MPG rating by accelerating slowly from every stop, driving at exactly the posted speed limit for city (25/35/45) and highway (55/65/70) everywhere I went and it hit the estimated numbers exactly. Driving only highway at the speed limit, I reached 32 MPG. Now, I don't drive that way usually, because, it's a turbo performance car, but driving style really does equate to good or bad fuel economy. Just because a car "can" reach those ratings, doesn't mean it will always reach those ratings regardless of other factors. On that point, pretty much anyone that drives a Prius around my home town drives it like it's a performance car, so I can only imagine they don't get the numbers they think they should either.
