According to the complaint, the company advertised that vehicles travel 17 miles per gallon (mpg) during city driving, 24 mpg on the highway, and 19 mpg of combined driving when, according to plaintiffs, the vehicles travel 15 mpg during city driving, 22 mpg on the highway, and 17 mpg of combined driving.
