Ha ha, I thought this was supposed to be a forum for technical back and forth and sharing of information, not egos and easily hurt feelings.

Mainly the low rolling resistance tires and aerodynamic wheel covers. Also the active shutters which are apparently now standard on most or all trims.

Between the grille and radiator, they close at higher speeds to prevent air coming into the engine compartment and improve aerodynamics.

I knew the SEL's have gone up one to 28/38 recently but I didn't see a change in the SE's. What trim are you getting?

It's an SEL and I think you are right about 28/38 from 27/37. Wishful thinking on the 39 I guess......

Ha! Congrats on the upgrade. I'll be getting 1mpg less with my old SEL.

Do you think the active shutters are the reason for the +1mpg?
