But no, in 9 years of technological advances they did NOTHING to improve mileage, there's not even an option or anything, all it is about is power and power and more power and so lets just dump raw fuel down the throat so that in fact things got worse.
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 :/
Time is the best teacher. Unfortunately it kills all its students.
You should have made the names visible so we could harass people.
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.
