Early, true, but only after making the Prius crack and comments about Ann Arbor, which is what makes you an asshole, isn't it?

Other idiots kept harping on about how I must not understand imperial gallons being larger.

I'm asking why the rated numbers in Europe are higher than in America. Either the testing methodology in the UK and Germany is fatally flawed and no one ever sees numbers like that, or the difference in tuning is responsible, or there's some other difference.

What I get is 'buy a prius' and 'hurrrrr, I don't know how to convert UK MPG to US MPG so ur dumb.'

Did you know what you bought when you bought it? Don't be mad, everyone in Ann Arbor still thinks you drive a fuel efficient automobile. Isn't that what counts up there?

Nah, it was him I was referring to. The self-styled Toledo Jeremy Clarkson has mastered the being an ass part without the funny part.

It was not your AA quip he's complaining about. Just to be fair. I did indeed comment on AA as well.

My name is James May, and you clearly miss the subtlety of my humor. Oh, and I'm smarter than you.

Changes in vehicle design over time are also part of the impact. Government isn't always on the ball with keeping pace. Increasing emissions standards means we no longer have lean burn little Honda motors on the roads and 50 MPG tin car diesels. This applies to nearly all vehicles as hardware to reduce emissions typically reduces fuel economy. In Europe this is an even greater impact because of the wider acceptance of diesels.

I now see that the European cycle is quite different from the US standard. A simple answer of 'look at the differences in the testing cycles' would have sufficed. Instead, you opted for the course of being a complete knobgobbling shitfuck, and that, along with the 'hurrr imperial gallons' was completely useless.

I've met more subtle bricks, and smarter too.
