So just because you have the grille shutter system you assumed you have an SFE? Yeah, no, and 40 MPG under certain conditions is not surprising with this car, with or without the active grille shutter system.

So you have an early build car with the shutters that was not an SFE, so the press materials were lying. Your car is not an SFE.

If you don't have this: http://media.caranddriver.com/images...s-1280x782.jpg

Then you don't have an SFE.

To the OP... Post pics of your car and real data off the ETIS system or this is getting closed. You're way off on most of your assumptions and info.
