LOL, now you are refusing to talk about HWY mpg's exclusively?
So you do not believe that a CVT would get worse MPG's than a 5 speed on the same highway drive?
Good, I guess we agree.
Anyone who cares can look at the same Fuelly data we are, and will see that Impreza's with the highest combined mpg's are all CVT equipped Impreza's -- not a single 5 speed on the far right of the data set.
That the Fuelly data confirms both the EPA mandated testing, and the experience of many NASIOC owners who have a CVT and report much higher mileage than my 5 Speed obtains, is only lost on you.
