Canada hasn't had gallons since I was a kid, oh, 30-odd years ago. We use litres / 100km for fuel economy up here; a lower number is better.

I routinely see 14-15 l/100km in city driving, and I've had it down below 10 in long distance highway driving. Converting, that would be 16MPG city and 23-25MPG highway. Still not the *30* quoted elsewhere, but not insanely bad either...
