I haven't been looking deeply into your link but in Europe you will find a homepage where everyone can type in their fuel consumption for any car: Spritverbrauch berechnen und Autokosten verwalten

Doesn't say where it is coming from, but for single car you have ratings vary from 10 to over 30mpg.
So the truth has to be between.

Actually I do believe it. Yes I do.
I know folks post here on the Board horrible gas mileage.
Then when you quiz them, or it's revealed , you find out
they are neglecting their routine maintenance, they have a teenager's
leadfoot or are using inferior, off the shelf parts that change the OEM specs.
But mostly I see:
Drivers who neglect to maintain their cars
Drivers who believe themselves P/T NASCAR Drivers.

I am neither of them but on my 2000 C230K I am
getting, approximately 24-27MPG City and 30-34MPG Highway.

This 10% Ethanol mandate from Congress is horrible for gas mileage.
I have documented, and can testify, how the 10% Ethanol has taken off
my car and motorcycle 4-7 miles per gallon!
My Bike doesn't lie. My Fuel Receipts don't lie. My wallet doesn't lie.
So yes, I can see folks in USA getting horrible gas mileage
due to the two main factors above.
