Is it my imagination?
I periodically watch YouTubes of Motorweek. I used to watch them on TV years ago. Pretty good reviews of cars, etc.

Is it my imagination, that many of the small to mid-size cars back in the 80/90s got pretty good MPG perhaps in the 24-25 area, and that new cars today aren't really that much better, 20-30 years later? I'm not completely sold that MPG has improved much over that last few decades.

Stands to reason that the big oil / automakers put a spin on improvements, but like weight gain creeps up on you, so does perception of false improvement, right?

I know things are better perhaps, but really, after 30 years the average midsize car only gets a few MPG better than before?
