I think the electric consumption will vary significantly through the year, being the worst in winter. My car’s display suggests about 2miles/kWh at the moment (it varies). I agree that stated mpg figures ignore the electric contribution, making them completely meaningless.
If I assume 2miles/kWh from the electricity consumed, my MY19 car has averaged about 31mpg so far. A far cry from the misleading figures which are advertised for this model.

Misleading - yes, but not by nefarious marketing intentions. These figures are standardized and legally binding. The idea behind this is to make cars comparable across brands. It does not work out very informative for plug-in hybrids, though.

Are the miles imperial or US miles?

AFAIK they're identical at 1760 yards. The US pint is 16 floz, whereas the UK one is 20 floz; so the US gallon is almost 20% smaller (or the UK gallon is 25% bigger)
