Man, I’m bummed. I wish I could get in on one of these tests where everyone drives a road trip at 40 MPG to post big numbers. Ol’ dummy Dave beats his brains out trying to get good MPG while driving a third of his tests on city/suburban streets and blasting down the highway at the posted limit.
Give me a flat road with no stops and let me drive 800 RPM in fifth gear and I bet I can get over 35 – maybe 40.
I reckon it would help if I lived in California – where the media is.

Well, it sounded like the only constant was that they all topped off at the same time. It said guys were doing the old tricks of shaking the truck or jacking the drivers side up so they could get as much fuel as possible into the tank. Then they drove a predetermined course in whatever economy tune or tune of choice that they had. So there was a wide variety of mods in the different trucks from almost stock to high HP. Then they all filled up at the end to see how much fuel they used. But I bet none of them shook their truck or jacked the one side up when they filled up at the end...
