A mileage of more than 20 kilometers per liter of gasoline or diesel is really a significant savings in the fuel cost. But I`m sure it has some drawback in other aspects, specially the price of the vehicle.

Maybe DOE should also show the test conditions they used to avoid exaggerations and partial and misleading information. Also, we don’t know what brand of fuel they used in the test, whether Petron, Shell, or Caltex. Or does it really matter?

Anyway, this one is a good reference if your going to buy a new car.
