Volkswagen's canoe-skinny mini could do New York to D.C. on 1 gallon of gas. by John Matras To listen to automakers snipe about tightening fuel economy standards, you'd think it impossible to squeeze more miles from a barrel of Extract of Arabia. This, of course, is not the case, particularly if you design a vehicle expressly to drive far and drink little. Forget power, space, and speed: Volkswagen AG's latest idea-on-wheels does not address the requirements of the average American family driver. What it can do is travel more than 100 kilometers on a single liter of fuel. Translation: 235 miles per gallon.

Let's see... 235 MPG for a single seater with no space save for the driver? OK then, I'll take the larger sedan version with the hatchback that gets the reduced fuel economy down to, oh, say only 85 MPG. [;D]

My view might be that of a simpleton,but as the biggest guys on the block,presumably the US,we should just TAKE by whatever means necessary ALL their(arabic countries) oil.Let them ALL go meet alah!With Iraq as the 1st stepping stone.
