This statement would have a lot more credibility if you were not here posting on the Warranty Issues and SOA Problems forum about gathering owners together to file some sort of warranty complaint for compensation for the 'misrepresented' EPA HWY window sticker number that Subaru somehow gamed the EPA testing to achieve.

"Comparison" remember? It doesn't *compare*.
The EPA ratings are not guarantees, they are the EPA's attempt to provide the average driver driving the average speed an estimate of what to expect.

I trust you that in Texas the speed limit in some places is now 85mph. That is not representative of the rest of the country.

Even with the higher speed roads that exist, I'd bet the average speed limit across the highways of the United States is not higher than 60mph. You claim to be the math guy, so look it up.

I'm guessing what SOA's response will be when they hear from you about how when you drive an average speed of over 70mph, and get lousy HWY mileage, that it reflects some sort of misrepresentation on their part.

Please remember to tell them about how your personal scangauge shows 36mpg at 65mph, representing real proof of their faking the EPA testing data.

My guess is they will contribute to the Texas Secession Fund, after they finish shaking their heads and laughing at you.
