If one wants more info on the EPA tests, please look at http://www.cruzetalk.com/forum/27-f...uth-about-epa-city-highway-mpg-estimates.html.Has this happened to you? You go shopping for a new car and great fuel economy is high on the list of things you want. You buy a car that's rated 30 mpg on the highway and 28 mpg overall by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). But after a month or so of driving around, you find that the best fuel efficiency you can get is a measly 24 mpg average. You might acknowledge that you drive a little faster than the speed limit, but you're no hot-rodder.
So why doesn't your fuel economy match the EPA rating?...
