You think I care about fuel economy?

The idea of "eco"boost, is a lot of power with still decent mpg compared to a larger displacement motor or the turboed motors of the past/present.


what's the wrx get? 18/25?
the sti? 16/23?
the ms3? 18/25?
the s60r? 18/25?

the focus st? ~25/~30.

in reality
wrx gets 22-26
sti gets 18-24
ms3 gets 25-32
no idea on the s60r
my fxt (which is heavier and way worse gearing and aero than the others) gets 22-26 pump and 16-22 e85

so the fukus being rated at 25-30 isn't really anything game changing IMO. unless those figures are real world feedback and not the bs the manuf posted up.

either way, like you said, no one cares

I got two choices ya'll, part out the car, or:

Bounce on the pedal, throw metal on the floor.
