I normally take the EPA estimate and add 10%. That's normally right near the ball park of throttle feathering.

I generally beat EPA estimates. I think they are reasonable if you compare the results to those results that reasonable people get. Problem is many people use brakes and accelerators like "on-off switches"

My cars used to routinely get better MPG than EPA estimates. Not anymore. It seems like ever since ~2005 when they started introducing ethanol again my cars just barely get EPA ratings or slightly less.
