Despite that, MRTG shows less than 100k 
> on average as far as traffic is concerned. Why is this?

MRTG takes a reading of how many bytes processes, 5 minutes later, it takes
another reading.
It uses number of bytes, divided by 300 seconds, to get an average.
Even with spikes as high as 3mb, an average will be much lower.
