Can some answer this

Why is it that turbo systems get better MPG than a supercharged one?

They're more efficient because they run off of the exhaust gases so its basically recycling power and you can stay out of boost or better mpgs

+1^ turbos aren't constantly making boost like a supercharger so they don't need to dump extra fuel in at the lower/cruising rpms

Let's give this a try. Turbos are more expensive. Thus with the owner having less money, he doesn't eat a Mickey Dees as often, thus losing weight and that would lead to the driver not weighing as much.

KAZAAM! BETTER GAS MILEAGE!

+1 that's the only logical explanation.
