I said before this thread was retarded and will say it again. It's mind boggling how people can't understand that short trips in cold weather WILL ALWAYS result in poor fuel efficiency and expecting to get EPA numbers in such conditions is just pure madness. EPA numbers are generated in a lab under favorable driving assumptions.
As for RAV4 giving poor MPG compared to other cars, how come I'm getting EXACTLY the same MPG in V6 RAV4 AWD with 268HP as my previous Subaru with it's 4 cylinders and 160HP (IIRC)?
Finally, if one really wants fuel efficiency, hybrid cars are readily available. My commuter car is Prius and I beat EPA and get 50 winter/60 summer MPG in pure city driving.
