Problem is 4mpg doesn't mean much. Is that 4mpg starting from 15 mpg (26%) or 4 mpg starting from 45mpg (8.9%). mpg gains diminishe as you go higher and higher, meaning that going from 15 to 17 (+11% efficiency) mpg yields a greater gain in efficiency than going from 45 to 49mpg (2x the mpg, but only a 8% gain in efficiency).
