They did increase mileage -- it's just offset by the extra power... and all that extra emissions equipment. Just imagine how much lower it would be if they only increased power and didn't increase fuel efficiency

Apparently, the consumers don't want less power with high mpg numbers... At least that's what we're told market research about us indicates Unfortunately for change, most members on this forum bought used cars. There's nothing wrong with that - my preference too, but our opinion doesn't have as much of an effect on the mfr's compared to someone that's actually buying the car new :/

Let me step-up for harassment. I would be happy (right now) with 35mpg on my 190. I am hovering around 27 for typical driving, and if I can convince myself, I will do a megasquirt on it and set my goal for 40mpg for a 6cyl gasser.

I'm easily getting 65mpg in my 16 year old, 4 seater car at normal traffic speeds without any special driving techniques, so they ought to be able to match this with a modern 4 seat car.
