I answered this already a while back, but you ignored it and decided to just keep on complaining:

It's not so much that the test numbers are "inflated" as the test doesn't include the conditions where the impreza is most inefficient. That is not subaru's fault, and they did not "game" the test. The test just unfortunately does not reflect the real world very well for a vehicle with an awd system designed like subaru's.
That is the problem with standardized tests in general. They try to create universal measurements for comparative purposes, but unfortunately the expectations they establish sometimes don't play out in reality. It's like that with lots of things; SAT scores; BMI; NFL Combine.

Stop worrying about arguments and pay attention when somebody actually answers your question.
