A few points and then I'll drop it.

There are a few cars that get 40's. But in the scheme of things that is nothing conmpared to requirements that all vehicles get high mileage.

I had a 2005.5 Jetta tdi that I did remove all of the emissions equipment (not much really, egr and CCV). It improved mpg from about 42 to 44.

I don't beleive in hybrids. That is fuel economy that doesn't count as the vehicles themselves are just too polluting w/ the heavy metals, batteries, and electricity production.

To be fair the "retards" running our country (technically it's a panel of 'experts' that independently decided how best to reduce pollution) they choose the exact same solution as every other country on the planet. Less tailpipe emisssions.

I'm officially...Stroke-less.
