You summed up squat, and you have been pointed to reviews in the past showing that in multiple tank tests where they actually checked the mpg's, the "professional auto reviewers" were disappointed in the mpg. Not the car itself, which you seem to continually try to convolute the argument with, but the mpg of the cvt. How many tanks have *you* gone through in a cvt? None, because you have a 5 speed.

Is that the best you can do? Go to their website and check out how they do compared to their testing vs. official estimates on other cars. I checked about 10 in the range of the cvt highway, and *all* of them did significantly better compared to their EPA highway rating - and in fact the average was about double the percentage above the highway mpg EPA rating.

Not that you understand any of that...
