Re: Overdrive

I know the Chevy Corvette has a 6-speed automatic, and the Corvette's basic V8 is approximately shared through much of their SUV lineup. It wouldn't surprise me if the intention was to get the...

Re: Employer Cash Incentives for Hybrids Are Taxable

All income is taxable, regardless of the form it comes in. The only employee benefit that's non-taxable is typically 401(k) matching and the employer's share of your health care benefits. Anything...

Re: Overdrive

It's worth pointing out at this point the Fit has a 5-speed automatic, not 4.

Re: Metro Phoenix "Special" Fuel Blend

Yeah if I remember correctly, "ordinary" E10 wasn't deemed good enough for Phoenix in the summer because of our incredibly high evaporative rates thanks to the heat. What's it supposed to get up to...

Re: go back to 55 mph?

Umm.. actually every car made in the last 15 years has that. They're called rev limiters and speed limiters. EVERY car has a rev limiter and about 80% of cars have a speed limiter. However, the...

Re: An Inconvenient Truth

Ok, so other than all the energy conservation tips on the website that everyone will promptly ignore after reading them, what does the book/movie say the solution is? Given the fact Gore is a...

Re: An Inconvenient Truth

It's been 27.5 for passenger cars but up until very recently it was still 20 or 20.6mpg or something for anything classified as a light truck. LT included all the "crossovers" such as the Subaru...

Re: "Who Killed The Electric Car?"

There's no reason to single GM out here. The almighty TOYOTA and HONDA are just as guilty when they quit making the RAV4 EV and Honda EV. Do not forget that.

Re: "Who Killed The Electric Car?"

So I take it that no one knows what batteries cost? You can still buy an electric car; there's that funky two-seater tandem one that has been posted about a few times. The Tango I think it's...

Re: An Inconvenient Truth

What are you talking about with this "California's fuel economy standards"? It's illegal for states to regulate fuel economy. In fact California has tried to sue the EPA about this since they...

Re: SUV's are safer than cars?

Indeed, being somewhere else is of course the best thing, but once something DOES happen, jamming on the brakes while remaining pointed straight is easier to control than swerving wildly into the...

Re: SUV's are safer than cars?

It wasn't a police chase at all. Cop cars have their cameras on any time the vehicle is in service. It was just a case of someone trying to change lanes into their blind spot without checking, the...

Re: Which is the Riskiest Investment?

Typically bond-holders are the first ones that have to be repaid in bankruptcy court. Before suppliers, stock holders, and even employees in some cases. Typically being the bond holder of a very...

Are you just counting material costs and leaving out the fact that dealership labor is $120/hour?

Re: Wisconsin Hybrid Tax credit nixed!! Toxic batteries??

Aren't 50% of all E85 pumps in the USA located in the state of Wisconson? I'm pretty sure they have a good (and by good I mean selfish) reason to not endorce hybrids and instead endorse gas guzzling...

Re: 698.9 MILES - ONE TANK! Dangit! (and definitive answer to gas capacity)

Ouch! I just did a map check and it looks like Tustin is a suburb of LA, thus you take I-10 the whole way. Other than the sheer pain of having that drive take so much longer, I don't understand how...

Re: H1 Production to End in June

B.S. The Suburban and Ford Explorer are what made SUV's popular to the masses.

Re: H1 Production to End in June

As if it matters? It's a $130,000+ vehicle. They hardly sold any of them at all. I'll bet you that more guzzler sports cars are sold than H1's, and there's not many of those sold either. The...

Re: Honda *must* make a hybrid Fit!

They already announced there will be a hybrid version by no later with 2008. They said it will score higher FE than the HCH and lower than the Insight. Figure probably 55mpg or so.

Re: Hummer Sales Up Nearly 300% in Last Year

How is it that a vehicle which sells at 25% the level of the Prius is considered mainstream, yet the Prius is still considered an inconsequential player?

Re: Got a Good Laugh Today

Those things have hideous FE too. Rated at 15/18 for the 2WD and an even more dismal 15/17 for the 4WD version, at least looking at the 2006 version on fueleconomy.gov. I suppose irony #1 is the...

Re: Remember Chernobyl

Not to mention the lack of a containment dome. That was problem #1. Never assume you have a fail-proof design, no matter how good it is. Every other reactor in the world has a multi-foot thick...

Re: Filled up wifes Dodge Truck...need defib!

My sister's F-250 PowerSmoke was showing 14.5mpg on the trip computer last Christmas, although probably due to a fair amount of idling. Then again, even warmed up, after I reset it and did some...

Re: Larger Churches Need Traffic Cops

That's a dangerous message, if you asked me. In fact, seriously you don't need to spend very much time reading the gospels to see the problem with that. Heck, I am TERRIBLE with remembering where...
