fueleconomy.gov: 49/51/46

Finally saw an entry in fueleconomy.gov: 49 combined / 51 city / 46 hwy. Here.
That's great for me -- I care most about the city number, and unless there's a big improvement to the Prius v "43 mpg city" in the 2018 model, there's probably a Niro in my future...maybe sooner than later!

With those being the EPA numbers, I really want to see what real world results are.

If you look at fueleconomy.gov, many of the average driver reported mileages are actually fairly close to the EPA numbers. But the individual reports vary greatly. We are individual drivers, not average drivers!

What bugs me is their not publishing all the test numbers. When I read of the new tests that were more challenging, I was eager to see the results. But as far as I can tell, these are kept secret by both the car companies and the EPA.

Based on my seasonal driving, I can understand how people who drive prii in hot climates get disappointing mileage. It would be nice to see the "SC03" Numbers, so customers could compare accordingly. Am I wrong? Does anyone know where these results are published? I failed to find them.
