EPA to change MPG testing

The EPA is planning on changing the way we measure MPG. Or at least the MPG you see on stickers at dealerships. Mind, this will take an Act of Congress to change the rules, so we're a ways away from the actual rules.

It remains to be seen how this will impact hybrids in the US. Although, the hybrids have been criticized for having unrealistic numbers, what is not normally discussed is how all MPG numbers are wrong based on real world driving. Even with new testing regulations, the EPA's numbers won't be your numbers, no matter what car you buy. Instead, these MPG numbers should be used for comparison purposes when you go to buy a car.
