EPA Screwing Recipients of Cash For Clunkers

For the record, I can't stand the politics of most of the posters at the Gawker websites, that being said... The posters at Jalopnik are reporting that the EPA has been secretly bumping up MPG figures for cars that fall within the 'clunkers' category in the Cash for Clunkers program. Saith the Jalops:
"New Jersey resident Jeff Chase was considering trading in his 1989 Mazda 929 for a new car and checked the government's website and it said it met the 18 MPG threshold to be considered a gas-guzzling clunker. He went back later to buy the new car only to discover the numbers had been changed and the combined mileage was now 19 MPG and therefore disqualified from the discount."
