Something that everybody should be conscious about when comparing fuel mileage between European and American cars is that the gallons used are different.
1 MPG (UK) = 0.83 MPG (US)
1 MPG (US) = 1.2 MPG (UK)
A 50 MPG car in Europe only makes out 41.5 MPG in America. The metric L/100km doesn't suffer from this, but I think more people are comfortable using miles and gallons. Just be careful when you're talking to someone across the pond that you're both speaking the same "language".
