      I think the Mercedes GLC gets pretty good gas mileage. All these guys are getting around 30MPG....

      Stop-and-go traffic is no good for mpg. If one always drive short distance and stop and go traffic, a hybrid car is much better to burn less fuel, get longer transmission lifetime, and not waste energy.
      Just an update - I played golf this weekend at a course that was about an hour from me. It was a combination of highway and country road driving. When I left my avg fuel economy was approx 11.7/100.

      When I got home that night it was 9.4L/100 or 24.7 mpg!!! So this car is very sensitive to driving conditions. It much prefers highway driving....

      This is impossible with the XC60 T5 or T6

      Those folks are quoting 30+ MPG on the highway.

      XC60 T5/T6/T8 can get 30+ MPG on the highway too. All of my long trips (500+ miles) have averaged 31 - 32 MPG (T8, sans charging).

      Most of my longer trips with the majority of the driving being highway I've gotten 27-28 MPG, however I did get 30.9 MPG on a recent trip from Los Angeles to Las Vegas.

      Always relative to driving conditions which are rarely stated.
      Under similar conditions over first 500 km I'm seeing (US mpg)

      XC90(1)T5 > XC60 (2)T5
      16mpg > 20 mpg (short trips / stop start)
      22mpg> 29mpg (commuting 50km mixed urban / rural)
      26mpg > 31mpg (highway)

      Recent Highway trip:
      leg @65 mph: 25.7 mpg
      leg[email protected] mph: 23.5 mpg

      City still tough...about 15+ mpg
      If I get out on roads that can catch some green lights it's better. The 4 way stops are deadly. And short trips, since the first km seems especially inefficient. I also get the impression that if damp/wet out, the efficiency drops. Is that a thing?
      I'm not convinced the auto-on/off is helpful.

      I've got a 2019 XC60 T6, and I'm just shy of 10,000 miles.

      Getting 22.6 mpg, almost exclusively driving in Comfort mode. Pretty easy for me to get 25-26 on a drive if conditions are good, but I do a little bit of sitting in traffic that costs me (and accelerating...). Leaving start/stop on made a noticeable difference when I tested it early on, so I've left it on all the time now.
