Actually I do believe it. Yes I do.
I know folks post here on the Board horrible gas mileage.
Then when you quiz them, or it's revealed
, you find out
they are neglecting their routine maintenance, they have a teenager's
leadfoot or are using inferior, off the shelf parts that change the OEM specs.
But mostly I see:
Drivers who neglect to maintain their cars
Drivers who believe themselves P/T NASCAR Drivers.
I am neither of them but on my 2000 C230K I am
getting, approximately 24-27MPG City and 30-34MPG Highway.
This 10% Ethanol mandate from Congress is horrible for gas mileage.
I have documented, and can testify, how the 10% Ethanol has taken off
my car and motorcycle 4-7 miles per gallon!
My Bike doesn't lie. My Fuel Receipts don't lie. My wallet doesn't lie.
So yes, I can see folks in USA getting horrible gas mileage
due to the two main factors above.
