The Accord and Camry were tested over 2 years apart, judging from the dates of the comments in each review.
Not only that, the part of the country they were tested at, looking at the pictures, and thus the track was different.
Not really an apples to apples comparison.
Fusion was reviewed by Edmunds, not C&D, also not a straight up comparison.

The Accord made the list again, the only midsize and mid-price car to do so.
Not sure which 10 Best list YOU saw, but the one I saw had the Mazda6 on it also. I consider the Mazda6 to be a "midsize and mid-price" car.

You're right. I stand corrected. I missed that.

That actually makes me feel a lot better. Which 4 cyl do you have in your Fusion? 1.6 or 2.5?
I have been trying to keep the instant mileage bar as close as I can to max mpg by being totally stingy with the gas. I have been diligent with it for almost a week now, but short trips and traffic hamper my goals as well.
I am at 22 mpg. The average of the 16 average mpg posts that I received is 26.2 on the 2.4 liter Optima.

I kept my cool until I got to the "cat" question/answer.

I can't believe (but am grateful) that Amazon has kept the fun going so long. All of the Q and A's are silly, but no one is arguing, inappropriate, or offensive.
The holiday spirit is alive and well indeed.

Good for them, and they just got a sale out of it. No, I didn't buy the TV. But hitting that link reminded me of a gift I'd been meaning to buy, so I just did it while I was there.

I have the 2.0 ecoboost. I usually wait for 3 round trips to work before checking the fuel consumption.
My wife has the same engine in her 2013 Escape.
So far, it has not come close to the 28 mpg highway rating, but overall it's averaged a bit better than the '09 Escape with the same horsepower.
