Bad Mileage

I have 2008 - 1.6L versa.

I do not get good mileage compared to what is should be getting as of 1.6L nissan engine.

I usually try to drive around 100 kmph if im on highway.

I do some quick acceleration till i reach around 50 kmph... (not crossing 3000 rpm).... then continuing with gentle acceleration and then cruise at the desired speed...

i get around 8.2L/100 km at the best and an average of 9-10 L/100 km.....
which is much lower for a small car... (i know 2.4L cars getting this economy)
i expect 6 or 7 L/100 km....

what could i do to improve efficiency?
what is the most economical speeed for versa? [i get 2000 rpm for 80 kmph]
should i accelerate gently in lower speeds, or do a quick accelerate to reach the cruising speed quickly?

tips tips? =)

THANKS GOOGLE, 8.2L/100km = 28.7mpg for everyone on here.

Well if you're going 100kmh that's actually good, any faster and you're losing gas efficiency.
Gently accelerating will definitely help during the lower speeds. At least that's what I do and I get around 34-38mpg = 14-16km/L. I notice when I accelerate quickly (3K rpm +) it eats my gas way faster. Hope it helps
