Uphill, towing a caravan into a head wind, with 2 overweight porkers in the rear seats, it's not bad.

It's a bit hard to tell as you haven't bothered to mention the car or engine size.
But it's not great, I get 29 mpg out of my 3 litre.
Don't blame the car though, it's usually the driver that causes low mpg.

Don't shoot the messenger... I'm just saying that any car gives low mpg if driven badly (accelerating uphill etc), so comparing your car to others won't give you the answers you need, it's a small piece of the puzzle.

Don't try to be smart when you don't even understand what's being said.
"Accelerating" means to increase in speed, between that and the example your giving (decreasing in speed) there's a compromise that involves "maintaining" your speed.
If the OP is one of the drivers that constantly accelerates hard and brakes hard then the point about blaming the driver is completely valid.
