    I look good with all the money I save without havinbg to buy gas just to go some where.

    BTW if they have that they can create a car that gets 100 mpg.

    Yeah lets see you take a date out in that.

    I like the volt, but the prototype looked better.

    I agree. honestly if gas gets much higher there would be a market for the car.

    Great music. I love CCR. A little short on mechanical details. I was curious about air fuel ratios and how many horsepower it made.

    I would think a modern Metro would be the lowest cost way of getting seventy miles per gallon, perhaps 80. Just doesn't seem like engine management has come that far since the Tuned Port Injected years. Perhaps this is the end of the line for internal combustion gasoline engines.

    BTW, think Toyota, BMW, Hyuandi, Tata and Ford are all in a conspiracy together?
