You are probably right about that. The Consumer Reports test is a constant 65 mph, and the Impreza CVT got 35 mpg there by a professional driver.

The thing is, a dozen other cars, all of the ones tested by Consumer Reports that also got 35 mpg on their highway test with a professional driver, are rated at 30 +/- 2 mpg EPA highway.

That's my point.

Well, one of them anyway. The other point is that you don't even have a CVT, so why do you think you are qualified to discuss this? All you do is bring up a collection of a few anecdotes anyway, which under the circumstances is an inept attempt at making a position.
