OMGHi2U Car weight and MPG over the years

I whipped together some data about automobile curb weight and MPG over the years, as I wanted to see for myself whether the perception that cars have become thirstier and larger is true. It turns out that the latter is most definitely true but not necessarily the former, at least for the hopefully-representative few models that I picked.

Data were sourced from Edmunds and Fueleconomy.gov. Charts are original content by this author, shikataganai, not stolen from some other site.
