It's interesting that this online acronym came about because years ago every time you saw an ad for a car, not only was the gas mileage displayed prominently, it was usually one of the features of the ad. And in television or radio ads, there was always a fast-spoken disclaimer, "Your mileage may vary".
I was thinking about it just now, and it occurred to me I haven't seen gas mileage even displayed on any car ad I've seen in the last few years. Has anyone else noticed this? Is it a regional thing?
They are required to post it on the sticker price, both highway and city. YMMV.

IT IS UNDER "PERFECT" CONDITIONS...
No stop and go traffic...no flooring it...no rain...no snow...all green lights...no stop signs...30-40 MPH (CITY)...55-65 MPH (HIGHWAY)
Re: Re: Ymmv
I know they are required to post it on the car's sticker, but you used to see companies advertise their fuel economy. Just an observation.
Re: Re: Ymmv
After the MPG, it went to "you can go 400 miles on a tank of gas." Of course, they never said how big the gas tank was. That's what I always thought was funny. What do I care if I go 400 miles or 350 miles? I'm more worried about MPG. But I guess some were worried about range.
I remember there was an ad for a luxury car--a Cadillac, I think. It was advertising 400 miles per tank. I said to my husband "I wonder how much room a 40 gallon tank takes?"
I figured 10 MPG at 40 gal is 400 miles. So is 40 MPG at 10 gal. But they weren't talking MPG. only range.
