Hidden Daily Fail linky! :tut:

In addition, during most tests the alternator, which recharges the battery while the engine is running, is disconnected so the car uses less energy than in real life.
You have to laugh. :lol:

This isn't exactly news... everyone knows you can't get the quoted results in real driving, because real driving is nothing like the test, and their "True consumption" figure is meaningless unless they describe their test method... some hack's burn around an industrial estate is not a scientifically valid test.

What was news was the recent Italian investigation where they showed that taking a new car and repeating the exact same artificial test on it resulted in a significant shortfall in results.. over 50 per cent worse for one car.

And talking about a 500, but showing a pic of the 500L shows a lack of attention.
