    Car buyers lose out in fuel-test "cheating" - Telegraph

    Nothing new per se, the German automakers have already once been caught with their pants down over this issue and I still welcome any petrol hybrid car the size of an Accord to match or beat the 919 miles (on a single tank of fuel) I had out of my former 8th Generation Accord. That is real world efficiency, not the marketing tripe printed on a glossy website or brochure!

    Feel free to discuss the article....
