    A couple decades ago, Honda marketed five models that got over 50 mpg, and that EPA objective is not every vehicle model, but an average across all models in a line. Honda’s initial hybrids also got better mileage than the current ones, in actual driving by Forest Service employees in the “real world”. Throw in some electrics for in city driving, or plug in hybrids, and it’s doable now.

    Barry would have us riding skateboards if he could, while he takes government jets for his 3 time a year, 5000 mile vacations.

    Heaven FORBID that we reduce the fuel consumption of our cars. Wouldn’t it be HORRIBLE if we didn’t have to wait in line to fill up EACH direction of our daily commute?

    Electric engines just move the burning of the fossil fuels elsewhere, and can reduce pollution in cities, but not total fossil fuel use (laws of thermodynamics: the energy has to come from somewhere, and there are losses burning fuel to make electricity, transmitting the electricity, charging the batteries, etc.).


    But, of course, if you measure only the gasoline burned by the cars’ own engines, electric engines reduces THAT fuel consumption to zero.

    Actually, the 55 mpg mandate doesn’t begin to kick in until after Obama is long gone, so if it causes any problems, the Obamabots can say, ’He’s not president any more. Blame the person who’s now in the White House.’

    When mpg was first addressed in the ’60s, many people said exactly the same BS you are spouting.

    With every MPG mandate the cars get lighter more costly an cost lives due to lighter frames .

    It is a bit boggling to see the government in action. They tax gasoline and fuel oil for infrastructure. They balance the budget with an assumption of what the use will be, and if they don’t make the necessary revenue they raise the tax higher. And we use less because it costs more, less revenue again and they raise taxes. And then wonder why we aren’t driving as much.

    You’re talking about electrics, right?

    “Oh, you mean like the bushy-bots are doing now? NOTHING bad happened before January 20, 2009, didn’t you know that?”

    No, the Obamabots have just kept the same mantra, “Bush did it first,” so no blame attaches to His Worship.

    All you have to do then is find someone who wants to buy one. Chevy Volt is not selling even with the government paying 1/4 the cost.
