The EPA is investigating Consumer Reports' findings that the gas mileage on Ford's Fusion and C-Max wagon hybrids aren't as high as advertised. In its tests, the magazine found that the Fusion had a mileage of 39 mpg and the C-Max 37 MPG, well below Ford's rating of 47 mpg for both vehicles. Ford argues - as one observer does - that the standardized government test doesn't replicate the way consumers drive their vehicles.
