Regardless of your vehicle, engine, or size, the numbers hold true.
Pesky meddling government scientists with all their measuring and calculating!

You would almost think driving the impreza at speeds averaging over 70mph will give you less than the 36mph promised on the window sticker!

Obviously, a big fraud!
