We almost have to factor in the fuel rate of flow at the pump when calculating our mpg. I mean if the pump flow rate is slow its possible for more fuel to be pumped in and cause a lower actual mpg. If the pump flow rate is fast it could result in less fuel accepted into the tank and an increase in actual mpg. Pump flow rates very from station to station and the settings on the nozzle. If possible, to get the most accurate mpg I would suggest fueling at the same stations and same nozzle flow rate. Im sure this is more of an issue for eco tanks.

With my eco I personally experienced this often at a station using the fastest nozzle flow rate, I would fill up and notice the needle not reaching full.
