@dawgbit,

If people would just drive sensible gas-burning vehicles instead of ridiculously huge trucks that they have no need for, there wouldn't be as much of a problem. Drive a 4 door car that gets 30 mpg instead of a truck that gets 7 on highway. Its just common sense right?

Why wouldn't people want to save money? Our Altima gets 35 mpg and up to 40 on some trips and I wish it got 400. I'd give up looking as manly for the 90% in fuel savings.

The electricity required to fuel these cars is fueled by coal.  They lose but they just don't know it.

Find better small cars. If you can't have fun in an a car like MR2 or a 240sx, you should just give up your license.

@The Doctor

I don't disagree. That said, it's merely the other end of the spectrum from those who proclaim so loudly and proudly the false merits of their so-called green cars. Green crazy save the planet hippies or good ole boy big tires and negative mpgs. Same stink, different assholes.

Common sense versus slick marketing...marketing is gonna win 90% of the time.

Edit to add, I'm dubious about the 7mpg thang. Tongue in cheek, yes? My v8 Chevy gets 21 city and close to 25 hwy. Even my OLD ('85--306k mi)farm truck get 16 or so piddling around the place.

Electricity comes from a whole host of sources, not just coal, even if it is a large percentage of it.

I drive a small 4 door car and get 21-24 mpg. I have friends with 4 door 4x4 trucks that get an avg of 17 in city and highway. Not much of a difference

Not to be an argumentative bastard, but two out of every three kilowatts charging prius's tonight on our little corner of the the planet come from carbon fuels. I'd say that's a very large percentage...

But did you know that 1.7 out of every 1.7 gigawatts running a time machine can come from lightning?

Jesus what are these small 4 door cars you're talking about? That's pitiful gas mileage. My 240 got 22-23 with the injectors being screwy and me beating the everloving Posted Image out of it.

Those folks like the smell of their own farts. My truck averages 18 to 19 hwy/city. It also has to pull 10 to 15 thousand pound trailers. That battery would need charging after a hundred yards of that. Deal is if they want to drive those cars I'm fine with it. They just don't do the job I need done.
