Certain drivers of CVT's are getting crappy mileage because it's SO easy to accelerate faster than in a 5-spd, and not feel it.

The CVT has a constant push in your back, and accel rates are not as obvious as you get when shifting a manual.

Put a 5-spd and CVT side-by-side, and the CVT would jump way out in front, with both drivers told to accelerate at a medium rate.

If those CVT owners used the paddle mode, their mileage would jump up.
