I know that the Chrysler sebring Vert I had in Vegas last year was hopelessly optimistic.

Admittedly we beat the tar out of the thing; indicated mpg 21.x Actual mpg 12.3

I've heard several people refer to the for power stroke display as the factory lie-o-meter.
It is certainly the source of the " I drive an f250 4wd jacked up and I get 27mpg at 80mph" people who seamed so prevalent last summer.
