KIA fudging the numbers? Or is this unique to my vehicle?

We all like to see those good MPG numbers on our dash. But can we trust them?

These are my numbers from last month. Almost entirely city driving, and I consider my driving to be pretty light-footed. You can see my L/100Kms is dead consistent fill to fill, actually shocked me a little just how consistent. What I'm not in agreement with is the numbers KIA has been telling me I'm getting (in red). For each fill, I clear the trip meter and on the next fill record the data before clearing again.

Are they intentionally misrepresenting? Or is this a problem unique to my vehicle? They're consistently reporting numbers much lower than actual. AND oddly enough, very close to what they claim of city driving 8.2l/100kms. So are they fudging the numbers to make you believe you're getting the promised mileage? Or is this unique to me?
