im with him
the EPA estimates dropped about 3-5 for most cars...which is that amount that you used to have to subtract from the sticker. they should be fairly close to bang on now.

I know the Edmunds editors average about what the EPA says for their LT fleet, and they're lead footed and drive in LA traffic, so if anything the EPA numbers are pessimistic. Then again, if you're not lead footed with the Camaro then you're not doing it right.

The 4 pack gauges are purely cosmetic. Good to check at a stoplight, but I doubt anyone in their right mind would look at them while driving. They sure do add some nice detail to the interior.
