Ha. Like the fat cat government and Auto CEOs and lobbyists will let this happen with CAFE regulations like they are.

The current tests were established in the 1970s. We as consumers can't help but be behind revision of the test to make it more accurate but we know some powerful companies that use the EPA to help pad fleet-wide averages and would be slightly miffed if economy numbers go down 10-15 percent. The answer to those companies – try harder.
