A sobering thought for automakers circling around today is that gas mileage ratings need to be accurate or profits could be pinched. The development comes after Hyundai (HYMLF.PK) and Kia Motor (KIMTF.PK) tell U.S. senators they will allow owners of vehicles with overstated fuel economy ratings until the end of 2013 to file for compensation. The bill for the pair of Asian automakers could topple $100M each.
