    i doubt you get 30 combined. Maybe on a highway. Or maybe in a 405hp CRX

    I'm not surprised at the MPG, as much as I'd like to see it better than that. I can commute in my Passat for 2 weeks on a tank of gas, which adds up to about 25 miles per day, or 250 miles per 14-15 gallons. That works out to 16.7-17.9mpg.

    If you want more MPGs, you gotta get a smaller car -- or a hybrid that can recapture its momentum and use it over again.

    In other news, that's a phenomenal amount of torque for an engine that small. Long live forced-induction.

    I'm drooling. I wonder what ford can do to compete with the likes of the Pontiac G8, Charger SRT 8 etc. Maybe they are just sitting that segment out.. :(

    No money to invest in exporting it and no real business case for it I'm afraid.

    This is how a modern American car SHOULD look/be like.
