That is pie in the sky.

I'd think realistic, 18 city, 27 hwy. Represents around a 30% improvement over gas. The targets I've seen are 40% improvement. I don't see that, but I think 30% can be done. But 40% would be cool

For me, I'd guess I'd get 13mpg in a gasser and ~18mpg in a diesel.

Assuming say, a $3000 option price, I'd make that difference up in about 4 years, with my level of miles (12k per year), with the present fuel prices.

I drive city stop and go, where a diesel really does well. My Fusion gets only 17mpg on my drive to work.
