    37 mpg EPA highway for a 200 hp, 3400 lbs non hubrid sedan was (is?) crazy a few years ago. A 2008 Accord with 190 hp and similar weight would barely make 32 mpg. I consider 33.7 a really good number regardless of the EPA rating.

    I guess I can't fault car companies for 'gaming' the EPA mileage system. It is a bit like being angry at big companies for using the tax loopholes that are in the system. It would seem odd if MB said in their ads "expect around 34 on the highway" rather than "rated at 37" But at the same time it really does seem like too many companies tune and program their cars specifically to do well on the treadmill and so they don't hold up in real life.
