Just scrolled over to trip “B” that hasn’t been reset since the first tank of gas. About 8,000 miles and averaging 21.4 mpg. I’d say that’s 70-80% suburban driving and 93 octane Costco mostly.

What about an over the air infotainment update that actually fixes bugs without creating new ones, adds Android Auto as originally promised, and call it the 2020 model. A redo of sorts
