Incorrect EPA MPG for my vehicle?

Inaccurate EPA MPG figures for my vehicle?

On the fueleconomy.gov website, the EPA estimates for my 2007 Malibu Maxx with 3.5L V6 are 18/28/21 (city/highway/combined), not the 20/30/24 that the site shows. Is there any way to show the correct EPA MPG figures?

The EPA only makes their pre-2008 estimates available in a data format that sites like ours can use. So those are the numbers we have.

If you send me a direct link to your vehicle on the EPA website I can update the numbers in our database. You can either paste the link here or send it via the Contact Form.

Here's another one. I have a 2012 Audi A3 TDI, but Fuelly shows the EPA data for the gasoline model. Here's a link to the EPA site:

sangyo, got that diesel model added. Just edit your vehicle and look for the profile section that says "EPA Type:". Click "change epa" and then choose the Diesel version.
