That actually would be a HUGE gain, 43%, but there are other factors involved. Definitely check out the Unicorn Corral, there are literally dozens of threads on the subject, and they all have a common element...bs.

BTW, normal driving can vary that much, look at my mileage, +45% over the EPA estimates....
