Ah, I parsed that incorrectly. I thought you were saying the EPA test cycle results would be affected. Sure, give people a ton of power and some will use it and get worse mileage.

On the other hand, perhaps they'd inadvertently engage in pulse and glide techniques: I bet the BSFC curves bear out that efficiency is greater at greater-than-EPA-cycle loads...
