Overall, city and highway, I'm getting right at 22 mpg. Best I have done is 26 on long highway trip. Wish it wS better, but I think a lead foot may be a contributing factor��

I have had my 2015 Latitude for a week (description in my signature of the vehicle) and I filled it up and I figured just a little over 21 mpg which was the same as the computer said. I am normally a really heavy foot, but trying to go easy while getting some miles on it. I have had 4 cylinder cars which are rated 25 town and I get about 18 in them. I have several Ram 1500 trucks and was lucky to get 10 mpg in combined town and out of town driving. So, I am really happy with my initial gas mileage (not using the start, stop, start feature either).
Heck, I am happy with anything over 10mpg.

I've calculated mileage with every fill up. I'm around 21-23mpg overall consistently. I've seen several posts from people claiming high 20's with a Trailhawk V6 with tow pkg... I don't buy it personally.. but conditions vary... so who knows.

This is a heavy car lights really kill the mpg. cruising at 45 i can get 29 but after a few stops and restarts that drops to 21ish.

First things first the car takes 87 fuel. Secondly, you CANNOT judge anything by the first or second tank, lol. I'd say you have to wait a good 1500-2000 miles until the engine is broken in. That being said, my 4cylinder 4x4 21/28 sticker Lattitude has never ever seen above 18 in the city and 25 on the highway. In my opinion, you always have to take off 2 MPG from the sticker numbers bc I believe those tests are done in the most conservative ways possible. Where you live and the weather conditions also factor into it, but if you're getting 18 in the city you should be ok with that. I wasn't, but hey, that's life.

Honestly If youre in the low 20's with city driving you're doing pretty well as far as I'm concerned. I've had my v6 TH for about a month now and am about to fill up for the 3rd time. While doing 100% city I'm a averaging about 13-15 mpg...
I would take low 20s in a heartbeat.

26 mpg is right for hwy. Depending where you live, you may have winter blend gas which will be less mileage. My Limited V6 with tow package list 19 city/26 hwy, tow package can reduce mileage slightly because of different rear end ratio.

It takes 89 octane for the V6, but will run on 87, that is what I use. V4 uses 87.
