The EPA being involved with is is a travesty. They shouldn't meddle in such affairs. I have the JGC EcoDiesel and easily get 25-28 mpg but if you get the same vehicle in Australia you are flirting with 50 mpg. So I ask you, is it better to get 25 mpg and save 10% on emissions or get 50 mpg? You would think that you are doing more for the environment by doubling the mileage, therefore using less fuel overall.
The Prius which everyone raves about is another scam as it's lifetime carbon footprint, from manufacture thru disposal is almost triple that of a Chevy Malibu with a six cylinder.
To think they have brainwashed these people into thinking they're helping the environment but in truth they're actually hurting it.
