I think there's rather long-standing criticism of EPA mileage estimates. Unusual about the VWTDs though, I thought generally the numbers Overestimate what most people get.

It would seem odd to only get about high 30s in a diesel, since certain gas cars can get that with clever tactics and a feather-foot. I always thought they were up closer to 50, but I've never had one so I couldn't be sure.
