Well gentlemen I´m adding more details:
Travelling in the city of Bogotá at highway speeds (70mph+) is something rare because if there's no traffic jams the speed limit inside the city is 80km/h
(about 50mph) and on highway it increases to 100 (62mph).
Anyways I'll keep reading these more comments, then I'll find a clear conclusion.
Thanks for your opinions, I'm amazed of the knowledge of Fuelly users!

I've just talked with a physician and he told me that car performances are worst on altitude because the quantity of air running into the engine, also the engines with more valves per cylinder optimizes the mix of air and fuel (using more air) which reduces fuel consumption. Based on this I asume that fuel consumption at a higher altitude should increase since the air available reduces.
I really appreciate any comments on this issue, I'm looking for theorical and concrete answers but logical opinions are also useful, so I'm glad if someone is willing to participate on this discussion.
