Rules for Claiming Over 38 MPG in a Volvo

What are the Rules for Claiming Over 38 MPG in a Volvo?

Just now in the Volvo 850, S70, V70, C70 & V70-XC Forum I wrote some quick rules primarily involving taking photos of your odometer during trips if you want to claim any MPG over 38. Yes, that’s an arbitrary number.

We don’t need a Guinness Book of World Records analyst next to you every mile, we just need something more to go on than you writing about your trip in the forum.

We have 4.56 litres in a gallon here so I often exceed 40 mpg using BP 98 octane fuel on the highway.
Exceeding 38 mpg sounds unlikely with your 3.8 litres to your US gallon unless you run downhill .
