    I'm curious if you think Volvo would actually build something like the 2015 Volvo P1800 coupe concept.

    Little bit of miss information about the fuel eco stuff. More modern engines can get more power with less air and less fuel because of combustion improvements. Things like intake and exhaust VVT improve combustion efficiency and can reduce pumping losses. I do agree that the way most OEMs turn there FI cars allow for minimum boost in EPA mode driving which is why they don't deliver on their EPA MPG. Also I can assure you that there are somes OEMs that are not cheating the system even though the system is setup to allow if easily.

    Things are reported differently to the top managment then they appear at the base, I know that from Daimler as a part of a project.
