Here is a Gov. fuel comparison to look at if your interested. It compares all the Big Truck fuel stats. These numbers are fairly standard across the board but alot can come into play that changes them, driver attention being a huge one.

Did you mean to say 10.4L/100km ? Not sure what the 'lts' means in your computation. I do understand the 22mpg for sure!

888km = 551.78 miles
85.4L = 18.98 Canadian gallons or 22.59 US gallons

551.78/18.98 = 29.07 mpg (Canadian)
551.78/22.59 = 24.43 mpg (U.S.)


Seems a bit high to me.
