[I][U]You are absolutely <font color='SandyBrown'>wrong and mistaken</font>.[/U]
Just read your own title:
26.2 km/l after 180 Kilometers - Honda City official world record broken!
You are quoting a fuel consumption, but it isn't!
You are claiming an official record, but it isn't!
You are claiming a new world record, but it isn't!
That makes you either a fool or a liar, or both.[/I]
That's rude. And that's offensive. And I feel offended by this rude and arrogant comment which should actually lead issuance of infractions on the posters part.
Saying that you should not insert your finger in a place where it doesn't fit is not a direct comment on any one. Its a general statement and is in no way rude. But this above quoted is a "DIRECT" comment on a person he is quoting. Its like saying "YOU ARE EITHER A FOOL OR LIER OR BOTH" is whats called a rude comment.
Don't you think?
First of all the claim of Insight being the 'most fuel efficient car ever' should be verified from FuelEconomy.gov (which is an official website run by the government): Most and Least Fuel Efficient Cars
Insight does not exist in this list. They do have Civic Hybrid, but not insight. And this page talks about cars from 2010.
If you go to the first page of the Hypermiling thread, and watch the very first video that I posted there (you should have seen it because you were suppose to confirm if its contents were acceptable) it says at 0:13, and I quote:
You know driving a hybrid is one thing, but driving it or any other car special way could get you even more mileage than advertised.
Next, Dan Bryant (in the same video) says at 0:37:
What hypermiler is basically someone who can beat the EPA. So go out to fueleconomy.gov and you look up your car's EPA and if you can beat it, then you're a hypermiler.
The narrator talking about Wayne Gardes (in the second CNN video I posted) says:
Wayne gets 50 mpg out of is plane old accord, twice.. of what Honda promises.
Next, visit Wayne's website: CleanMPG, - Garage An authoritative source on fuel economy and hypermiling
Every member maintains a record of their best mileages there. This is the record of one member. They easily can get above 100 miles per gallon.
And this is not just the above link. I've seen literally dozens of threads of people posting snaps of 110, 120 and even 130 mpg averages. What's the big deal if someone can get 62 from a 1.3L car by driving maturely and not like morons?
