It's a problem with all the brands.

Since they all advertise with "EPA Estimates" I would say the way they do those estimates are wrong since they never come close to real world experience.

I don't see what so friggin hard about filling a car up with gas, driving it around, refilling the gas and calculating the observed economy, but why would the EPA do anything right. They probably have a crack team of physicists calculating the energy requirements to push a spherical Ford at 55 mph through a vacuum.
