True, but I gave the higher mpg rating because, at least in my area, I see a large number of smaller Honda and Toyota vehicles used for delivery. However even with a more fuel efficient small car the large number of jackrabbit starts needed to deliver on time may offset what would otherwise be pretty good fuel economy.
