i don't think so. some people such as stevehnm believe they can do no wrong and it is never the driver, the locale, the driver, the temperature, the driver, the fuel blend, the driver, etc etc etc. there are a lot of different factors that affect mpg. i bet you can drive your friends new car and get completely different mpg on her normal commute.
most of the factors i just posted arent actually included in the epa's testing. it is a flawed system, and if you took the numbers as guarantees I'm sorry you ( in general, not you specifically) are gullible and deserve what you get.
