I use a VPN service that accepts Bitcoin.
When testing to see if I got any leaks on http://dev.cbcdn.com/ipmagnet/ it shows up as:

Timestamp               IP address(es)                                        User Agent
29.05.2014             [VPN IPv4 address], [my IPv6 address 1]        Transmission/2.82

usb0 is the device I tether my internet from. tun0 is the vpn.

Code:
$ ifconfig

Logically, yes.

Check your routing table to give you more information about how routes are connected. It'll give us more information than your IP addressing.

I wonder which VPN service you are using? I recommend https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/ .I think they are the best and trusted Bitcoin accepting VPN service.
