It's not *my* theory.
Like I said before: "It does seem to be a problem with the cvt. The 5sp's don't have it, and of course there are nimrods who will defend the car to the death because they won't admit to themselves (therefore to anyone else either) there might be a problem with the car, so even if they have the 5sp they will defend the cvt."
Plus, your links are irrelevant to the discussion of the cvt's actual mpg.
