I assume you're referring to Imperial gallons, which are 20.09499 percent
larger than U.S. gallons.  38.6mpg x .8326742 equals 32.1mpg, which isn't
impossible to achieve in a 4k driven mostly on freeways (on the trip back
from Las Vegas to Phoenix, which is downhill most of the way, I routinely
averaged 32 to 34 mpg and 70-75mph.  Of course, on the trip over, I could
only manage 25 or 26mpg at that speed...).
