Yeah such a disparity doesn't make sense, given all the other data out there which show the 2 cars much closer.

Consumer Reports shows 43 mpg in their highway testing of both an SFE and SE Sedan, but then they show 39 mpg for a SE hatchback they tested. Problem with them is they don't explain the test conditions, most importantly speed.
