I agree it doesn't make a whole lot of sense to complain about not getting great mileage on these things. I also don't see it as directly hypocritical because because he's not complaining about people complaining in general. All of that being said, I also understand why people try to get all the mileage they can. I get about 15 average which I'm fine with. I bought my truck to enjoy what I drive. I wouldn't enjoy driving a sub-compact. I do also agree with Surreal. The thread is amusing. Besides, it's in the right section for general rants.
