Best way to calculate mpg is fill it up and use Odometer trip to see your actual mileage per tank. Most of it depends on your driving habits. Stop and go traffics less mpg, city driving less mpg and highway driving higher mpg.

Fill it up and take it on the highway for 15-20 min drive and you'll see your mpg average go up. As long as the traffic on the highway is flowing or along stretch of road without alot of stops.

I don't know if everyone would recommend it, but the vehicle has also learned your driving habits so it wouldnt hurt if you did a battery reset. Just be aware of what comes with that (radio presets, bluetooth, saved POI's, etc.)

it would be marginal at best <1mpg. The biggest thing IMO would be tire pressure, and the use of premium fuel. These car tend to run better on premium as the knock sensor would have to retard timing less.
