Highway mpg

I've read people on this forum state multiple times that if you make your car lighter you will get better city mpg's but lower highway mpg's. I never questioned this but I just ran across this article on Car and Driver.

http://www.caranddriver.com/reviews/...on+id-259.html

It looks like that information was wrong. Interesting read.

Re: Highway mpg

ok. i don't rememeber anyone saying anything about lower highway mileage. but ok. i've always thought a lighter car would get better mileage all around.
