I'm getting about the same. Although mine is 90% city and 10% freeway.

I've only just hit 1000 kms.

I'm slowly seeing the consumption come down to come down to 17l/100.

Yeah when you start getting past 6-7000km you will notice the difference. The engine will really loosen up.

GEN4 how are you getting it so low? I am running at 16 while going very easy on the juice pedal! As the engine wears in it should improve, I have only done 700 klms.

I wonder if your CAI is helping a lot?
