My K12 was within a whisker of the K13. It did much longer mileage trips than the K13 has but I doubt the difference was more than 1 mpg.

Not zeroed the mpg readout on my K13 since the day it arrived four years ago.

Currently showing 54.3 mpg.

 Could be my supreme mechanical sympathy - or inbuilt genetic Yorkshire frugality and a hatred of letting the moths escape from my wallet.

Excellent!
I confirm you can definitely have fun at 54mpg.

56-57mpg is on the edge of abuse, though. I've been there on a day-long group ride, and it's a bit steady. Not unpleasant, but a waste of a K.
