On this long trip, with my '14 D2 wich has done only 32,000km..
502,6 km each way, with 3 adults and 3 big gearbags.. Heavy ****..
I averaged on 3litres per 100km
And I would say that is hella good.

Pretty much bang on 60 mpg (some tanks 58, some 62) - that's over 15000 miles or so.

How is something like only 3l per 100km possible? I drive pretty eco, but never went under 5,3l per 100km, which for me was normal because it is advised with 4,5l/100km.

Ok wait. Conversion. People here are averaging at 60 MPG which is Miles per Gallon, right?

1 Mile = 1,60934 km
1 Gallon = 3,78541 liter

60 Miles * 1,60934 = 96,5604km per Gallon
96,5604km / 3,78541 liter = 25,508km per liter

I need 5,3 on 100km which makes 18,867km per liter. Converting this into gallon -> 18,867km * 3,78541 liter = 71,42 MPG.

Did I made a huge mistake in my math, or am i right with a MPG of 71,42? Is that good?

Couple of mistakes :-
1. there are 4.546l in each UK gallon (you used US gallon)
2. you only half did your calculkation

5.3l/100 = 18.9km/l = 18.9*4.546 = 85.77 km per UK gal.
Then you have to convert from km to miles by dividing by 1.609 = 71.42/1.609 = 53.3 miles/UKgal
