I agree with Ecky on this one, the CVTs are great for keeping low RPM (my Altima turned 2500 at 80mph), but they’re still flawed in that they’re usually programmed to hold back on hills, and don’t allow normal pulse and glide cycles, or even DFCO in some instances... however, for the average driver, a modern CVT is great for efficiency... I could usually beat the EPA rating for my Altima by 25-30% without any sort of heroic effort...
