Based on your results you are getting just under 11L/100km and that's pretty damn good.

I'm getting about 17L/100km running the same gas. Of course the big difference is mine is city driving.
We have 5 stop signs from here to Hangover but the road is real hilly and this 6 speed will downshift to 4th on some hills and when it does the rpm's jump from 1500 to 2600 in a flash and then it seems to take a long time for it to shift back into sixth. We drive at 92 on cruise and really don't have any short trips because there isn't anything in this town so if we need something we have to drive. That's why we have 32,000 kms. on our RAM in 9 months. Plus 13,000 on the F-150 since we bought the RAM.
