The mileage estimates are by the EPA, not by the car manufacturers. They are not real world mpg estimates. What they are good for is comparing one vehicle with another, not for expecting that you will get that mileage. Real world mgp is never the same as the EPA estimates. It will be either less or more, but not the same. Besides, in the real world, it's almost impossible to get the true mpg you're getting. The best you can do is approximate. Check out consumer reports and other sources, if you want to know real world mileage. The Prius, for example, supposedly gets 51mpg in the city; CR reports that in their tests, over the course of several months, they got 30-something in city driving. But they got more in hwy driving than the EPA estimate for hwy. I'll look up the Equinox and post what CR says was their real world mileage.Report it
