I buy a Prius, and what happens? Reality: Hybrid Cars’ Fantasy Mileage Ratings Drive Into the Sunset -
Good news: I’m not a horribly inefficient driver; bad news, 48/45/46 aren’t even close to what’s on my window sticker. The EPA decided to test more like people drive (speeding, etc), but with the 2008 model year.
Oh, and tank #2: 44 MPG by the calculator, 46.8 by the car computer. Hmmm.
