It is important to note that some people are getting better mileage that others, and the type of drive that yields higher and lower MPG's, but it is also important to realize that you and your experience are not universal, so saying the car does not meet the advertised MPG's for anyone is demonstrably false.

By the way, his car (a CVT) is exceeding the EPA numbers, my car (5 speed) is only meeting the projected Combined MPG number (currently 27.89, dropping a bit since I put snow tires on and will climb again in the spring). That's to debunk the whole CVT vs 5 speed myth that keeps getting promoted here.
Really??? Cant speak for Porky.. but he lives 12 miles from a Grocery store, just a guess. but thinking he may be on the far left or right of the bell curve... and the AVG is inflated due to his 128mpg skint... C'Mon and yes.. AS OTHERS HAVE STATED....YOU DONT HAVE A CVT!!!! So dont comment on the CVT MPG's...OMG. I will give you my car.. you can drive it however you want and you will not achieve the advertised MPG's. I guarantee it!!
