I wanted to make sure so I calculated it like this:

9 litres / 100 km
(9:3,785) / 100 km
2,3778 gallons / 100 km
2,3778 gallons / (100:1,609)
2,3778 gallons / 62,1504 miles
1 gallons / (62,1504:2,3778)
1 gallons / 26,13777 miles

26,14 mpg


So how come the computer gives me imperial gallons although I have the computer on US english???

Perhaps the euro versions only understand imperial gallons.

My average consumption ( 13,5 l / 100 km ) in US gallons is therefore 17,4 mpg.

Well, live and learn, as they say :-)
