Basic - While I agree with your statement, if it were possible to break mpg down into a pure segment of "around town / city" mpg versus pure "highway," I would guess that the HB may take the lead (by half a gnat's ass) over the G4 in "city" driving. But only because it weighs a couple kibbles less. But out on the autobahns (our interstates) I have to believe the advantage goes the other way, but just by both butt checks of a gnat, based on your statement above.

My $0.02 worth. Let me know if you need change back!
