The mileage ratings are given out by Transport Canada here in Canada.
The ratings are to compare vehicles and don't really reflect real world mileage.
I heard Transport Canada puts the vehicles on a chassis dyno inside a building and simulates city and highway driving.
Then they come up with a ridiculous 26 MPG rating.
The EPA in the US uses a more realistic testing method and gets a 20 MPG rating for a Hemi Ram.
