    Do you leave the stop/start feature enabled or turn it off. As I believe Dan demonstrated earlier this year, it has a significant impact on mileage in urban driving.

    Not to mention that on the EPA run they are often able to keep turbocharged cars in the vacuum versus being in the boost. Once that boost hits the mpg tends to plummet while the smiles per miles go up. You really think that people aren't trying to feel that surge of power as they drive? I've got a Focus ST and it is amazing what actually getting on the gas will do to my mpg. But the smiles make it worth it, at least to me.

    LA freeways = city roads everywhere else. Still 21% better fuel economy then the mustang GT, with similar performance.
