You Get 12 MPG Less Than You Thought

The EPA will soon begin testing the fuel efficiency of vehicles using a new and, supposedly, more realistic protocol. The upshot of this change is that most cars will be rated less efficient than they have been, but hybrid vehicles will suffer the most. Keep in mind that driving style has a huge impact on one's mileage. Shuiab, for example, makes a game of eking out every last meter from each cubic centimeter of fuel; he often gets over 50 miles/gallon.
