Don't see what engineering has to do with this either.
I'd be curious what else he'd want to do to it. The bias in the data is already stated - he used 5 cities. Given that and the fact that there was a decent amount of variation in between the cities, its pretty obvious that this is a sample of what is out there.

With that said, THANK YOU, OP, this is g great! Really nicely done. If I could give you a +1, i would. Why doesn't the mainstream car media do this kind of analysis? Oh, because they don't give a shit.

I'm only bummed because evidently I didn't get *that* good a price on mine. I think I was 10-12% off MSRP.
