Hypermiling, lap #2

In December, Consumer Reports and some independent reviewers found that Ford's Fusion and C-Max hybrids can't match their mpg claims either. Instead of the 47 mpg Ford (F, Fortune 500) claimed, the Fusion got 39 mpg in real-world testing, and the C-Max got 37 mpg. Ford's response, in part: "Driving styles, driving conditions, and other factors can cause mileage to vary." The EPA said it would investigate, and Ford could face civil penalties if it was found to have misstated claims.
