Wow, the new ones are pretty much exactly what my car gets for the 89, the 86 is still a bit higher (even though they are the exact same car, engine, etc..)

24 highway, 16 city. I'm going to go change my garage entry to match. These numbers are a bit more realistic.

Wow! 46mpg combined to 40mpg! Does this mean that every vehicle on this site will become easier to hypermile?

Why did they change anyways?

Amerikan'ts aren't the brightest creatures and don't understand why they aren't getting the old EPA ratings using remote startups, racing to every light, and averaging 75mph on the freeway. When not stuck in bumper to bumper traffic of course...

Pretty much, the new test covers faster accelerations, AC usage and colder temperatures.

The new EPA is alot closer to reality with the Wrangler

Just updated the EPA ratings of the 3 vehicles I have in the Garage. All the members on this site should do the same so we are all on a level playing field.

Wow, the Honda Insight's EPA crashed from 61/70/65 to 49/61/53.
