These sorts of complaints are always such crap. If you keep your foot out of the turbo then you get better mileage. This is arguing essentially that we need slow unresponsive cars and then we will get better fuel economy. The EPA tests are fair. Maybe people don't get those results, but to simulate that one would have to have different testing procedures for turbos that take into account variances in driver behavior in response to the engine (torque changes etc).

(Yes I read the 0-60 part that said they were the same and got the same economy in the real world).
