First off, I have never said anything about court or "warranty purposes" so I would appreciate it if you would quit putting words in my mouth. Oh wait, that's how you've kept this conversation going - talk about misrepresenting, you're way beyond that.
Of course I can achieve 36 mpg. That, again, is where you have lost touch with reality. I can get 45 or 50 mpg if I go slow enough. However, to go slow enough to get 36 mpg on a real road would be hazardous to myself and others - and you keep conveniently ignoring the fact that the cars you yourself mentioned get significantly better mpg at the same EPA rating. "Comparison" remember? It doesn't *compare*.
