    Hardly a proof in my estimate. Remember a firm called VW? Governments tend to be lackeys of the manufacturers claims until a whistleblower blew the cover of VW.
    Our government gives tax advantages to all electric and hybrid electric vehicles. Different strokes for different folks. Who really knows which technology actually has the minimal effect on our environment?

    Crude oil will be refinded and produce every sort of oil at a given ratio. Sufficient consumption of diesel fuel would be necessary to balance the supply not to leave waste. No?

    Some think that the crude oil stock has much more use (petrochemical products) than to merely be burned as fuel.
    Some of the photographs of early western American cities indicate a total lack of trees....they had been felled for use as fuel or construction material. Luckily today these areas have many trees..they could be regrown. Our technology has become very good at locating oil but we have yet to be able to grow it at will.

    My favorite has always been the 1994 Ford Taurus SHO, pictured on the right (green) in front of the garage door.

    The most popular and reliable cars worldwide are made by Peugeot and Rover. Most aren't imported to the U.S. Which limits what most Americans know about them. The XKE is still and always will be the most beautiful body style ever made.

    My old BMW 5 series spent more time being fixed than driven. Same with my wife's MB 350.

    Bought a Audi A8 a couple of years ago and it is by far the most reliable, comfortable car I've ever had.

    A friend bought one for his wife (she absolutely hates shopping for cars) several years ago and it has been a great car. The only problem was that, shortly after new, it would "try to get all sideways and stuff @ >120 MPH", so he took it to the dealership. They reprogrammed (per a TSB) one of the modules, and all has been good since then.

    Up here it is difficult to drive in the winter without a 4WD so we have owned Nissans (2 PathFinders and 1 Frontier) and one V8 TrailBlazer with the Corvette engine, so far.

    As of right now we have only the PathFinder and the Frontier as we gave our daughter the '08 Trailblazer.

    I do my own mechanical work so drain and fill plugs on every driveline component is a plus for me and Nissan's have those.

    The most fun car we ever had BK (Before Kids) was a Forest Green '70 Nova with the 350 cu. in. engine, 2-Barrel Rochester carb, and a 4-speed manual tranny. 18-21 mpg if we drove it sanely.

    On road trips between St.Louis and Iowa our speeds averaged 75 mph and that was before 4 lanes N&S.:D

    Still digging my Subaru Forester. Waving so-long to Jeep drivers for the last two winters
