I think it is really cool.You wont have to pay a lot of money for gas. It would probably get the gas stations to lower the gas price.

I could be wrong, but I believe as vehicles get better gas mileage the gas price will tend to go up so the oil companies can maintain their extremely high profits. I'm going to have to ride the Harley way more now on the weekends - diesel prices are horrendous.

If I could go 3000 miles a gallon, I would gladly pay $10, maybe even $20 a gallon. It would still be better.

Well, I must agree with you Dave. But dang, did you see that tiny car? I couldn't put my pocketbook in that thing. I know, they are only experimenting. We'll see what happens.

I get your point. It wouldn't be practical for grocery shopping or family vacation, but wouldn't it be nice to have one only to drive back and forth to work or school. A tank might last you a good 2 months at least! I want a motorcycle for the same reason, but the weather kinda makes it hard.

COnspiracy Theory: Shell holds the competitions. The top performance vehicles win a prize. In order to get the prize (or perhaps join the competition) competitors have to sign a disclaimer either to not mass produce their inventions nor sell it to any entity that will mass produce it. This guarantees the gas comapany have more time to keep sells and profits up. Kind of like if a pharmaceutical company keep the cure a secret, because they were making too much money from the treatments.

Huh...interesting. I won't be holding my breath for it to come out into the market by the end of my lifetime, though.

I love driving THROUGH Atlanta in a vehicle. I love speed, but there is no way I'd want to do that on my motorcycle. I'm so crazily defensive now as it is. Good luck and be careful. I'm with ya on the commute - mine is 96/day.

And Dave, I'm with ya just to save the money. I remember when I really wanted a Honda Insight for work alone. I never got it and if my commute ever became further I guarantee you I'd look into the Hybrids once again.

To be honest, I would never buy a Hybrid, they are designed with the same soul and passion as a whirlpool washing machine.
