The oil co.'s have their fingers lining the auto industries pockets. Most little cars can't get over 40 mpg and even the hybrids are hard pressed to surpass fifty and you have to pay a premium for the technology. Two seat Smart car makes me laugh.....thing should get 60+ not 38. What's the point of buying it at those mpg? And the price of diesel is more than gas....sometimes by .30+ cents so if you do have a diesel and get better mpg's you pay more for fuel, so no gain. And diesel is less refined and cheaper to make...hmmmm.
They can make 70+ mpg cars here if they want...diesel, hybrid and I think gas too but big oil of course doesn't want it and none of the car magazines even mention it...maybe they get some hush money too?
Where there's smoke there's fire and I think this whole mpg thing is smoldering!
THIS IS NONSENSE. You can't compare cars fueled with electricity on a Gasoline based chart.
Electric powered car efficiency is all over the chart. Some get 38 miles on a charge and some near 100.
What's the cost of the recharge for that milage?
A chart of DPM (dollars per mile) is needed here.
