Lyndon and myself are mileage misers.  We love MPG ratings, the new EPA stickers, and how the manufacturers try workarounds for the EPA tests in order to beat the system.  Hat Tip to Motor Trend for coming up with their list of the top ten most fuel efficient non-hybrid models by combined mileage.  The one oddity we can’t really understand?  How the VW Passat diesel takes out the lilliputian Golf.  Newer tech and aerodynamics are employed in the Passat, but weight is weight.  The Passat checks in at around 3400 pounds, while the Golf weighs around 300 pounds less. Around two welterweight MMA fighters worth of weight.  What gives?

No surprises with the Scion iQ taking the top spot.  That could be blown away by a ceiling fan…
