They kill 2 birds with one stone, show estimated fuel economy, AND how it can look. Also if its not ok volkswagen, volvo, bmw, audi, mercedes, chevy, porsche, ford, and lincoln all need to remove and refilm their commercials. Its not to lie about their product, its to turn on the greenies, and turn on those who want looks. Not to lie to one group or the other.
Hey look at the new challanger, 27mpg!
Hey look at the new challanger can get 27mpg!

Which one has you wanting to go down to the dealership? Its not dishonest, its car porn, Show you its pedegree and what the base model you end up with could look like. No where in the ad did it say *500 miles per tank on above vehicle as equipped... so if you assume that its a ploy or something thats just you not having a job in marketing
