I saw this I believe yesterday in a post and I looked through the past two days of threads and could find it again. I figure I'll ask it go others to chime in.
So far it would appear that many North American STs are getting way below reported MPG so far.
On the other hand I've read reports stating that the Euro ST is getting much better MPG and closer to the standard North American Focus of nearly 40mpg.
What gives with this? Is the edge because the Imperial gallon is larger and is based on a 40 ounce quart rather than the American gallon being based on a 32 ounce quart with both having 4 quarts to a gallon?
Is it the weight of the North American version a problem which weighs in at an alleged 3223lbs or 1465kg, what is the offical weight of the Euro version and is it lighter?
Something is amiss for a Global vehicle.
