what about the Cobalt XFE? according to popular mechanics real world test it's "combined" MPG is 32.3... which is BETTER than the Fit and the Mini Cooper listed... oh wait... i guess it wouldn't work to have more than one token American car on the list (just so they don't look biased even though they are)

Smart Car is #3...wa hoo!

Notice how each car has a "combined" MPG rating? My "combined" rating is 30+ mpg = 40 mpg (2008 Smart) + 24 mpg (2010 Camaro)!

Don't you know American cars suck? they are #1 in bad quality and GM is lying about the XFE's fuel efficency. It actually gets 27 because I said so.

2010 Camaro V6 is 27 MPG and V8 is 24 MPG

I already order 1SS black in black.
