Very rare to get what the sticker says. If you read how they test the cars,
you'll see it is not very realistic method compared to the way 99% of us

get that on my 6 cylinder Sonata.
equipped Elantras seem to struggle to meet their ratings.
It seems REALLY low for straight highway driving. He should be getting
~10 MPG more than that, but again it depends how he's driving. If he's
doing 80+ and driving aggressively all the time, I would expect his
mileage to be that low.
