Good find Scott, I do however question one point in that article. It says the 2011 GC will average 500 miles per tank of fuel. I find that really hard to believe. I can get 300 miles now 65mph on the highway. The 3.6L gas mileage is not that impressive and probably over-rated at those numbers. I think you would be lucky to get 400 miles per tank.

X2 I would have to agree with that but also keep in mind that the WK2 has a bigger gas tank

500 miles may be possible if you run it down well below "E" on the highway. But, they said average 500 miles per tank in that article. I call BS, but maybe it was just a typo?
