Mitsubishi admits fuel economy rigging | Autocar This is how it started out with VW. I am willing to bet my left buttock (or the right if one prefers) that the fuel economy claims about the crappy PHEV Outlandish/er will also emerge as a total nonsensical figure that Mitsubishi found wallowing in the nearest rectum. I hope the powers that be impose massive and disproportionate punitive charges against suck ilk. Mind you, with the penalties that are looming over VW, which amount to almost three times its market capitalisation, if the US EPA gets its way and forces through the fines, VW could sell off all its crown jewels and still end up bankrupt. Thats not a wish or a whim - it is real, and VW know it. But hopefully now, the inane public buying those junk Outlandish PHEV crap will sullenly sit and wonder what other garbage they are ingesting. Muppets.
