You have to remember that that gauge isn't telling you how much gas you are consuming 'instantaneously', it's telling you how much fuel is being consumed per distance traveled (100km).

So there is no doubt the car is consuming way more fuel at 200km/h vs 125km/h, but it's consuming less/same 'overall' amount for the distance traveled because you are covering the distance in a shorter period of time.

Either shot
