Default talks of up to 56 mpg mandate for autos in the future..

Anyone see/hear about this 50 something mpg mandate..? I for one think that is a terrible idea. Vehicles with better MPG's are only going to force the fuel price further. For example, if my truck now currently gets 10 mpg and my new truck gets 20 mpg I am using half the amount of fuel I did before. Therefore the oil company is making 50% less money so fuel price will go up. What's your thoughts on high mpg's...???

I think its BS...the government should STFU and let us drive what we want with shitty gas mileage...you bought it you know what the mileage is going to be you deal with it...not only will gas go up the cost for cars will go up too cause of the new shit they will have to make/modify for the 50+ MPG...

Two things not being taken into consideration by the government.

1. When parts wear, they become less efficient. This decrease gas mileage. Even those 50 mpg cars will eventually get knocked down quite a few mpg's.

2. What the factory says fuel mileage is, usually isn't the true number.

They're trying to reduce our dependency on fossil fuels. This means our cars will sound like queefs, and no more of this.

This will cause a huge problem in the economy and the hotrodding industries in a bad way. First thing is this. The price of a vehicle will go way up due to the hybrid technology's extremely high costs. The second thing is this limits your choices of to 3 different kinds of vehicles. A Harley Davidson, a Toyota Prius, or the new Chevy Volt. The final thing is what was said earlier. Half of the fuel means double the costs of gasoline from the oil companies. That will in turn pass those costs onto the consumer which means nearly triple the price per gallon by the time it gets transported to the stations across the U.S. The federal government should shut its soup kooler and worry about how to fix the economy rather than make it worse than they already have. All they have to do is legalize medical grade marajuana on the federal level and use my state's tax code "L" like they do on my pipe tobacco and there goes all of your debt problems along with the excessive spending done during the so called "drug war" which was and has been lost for several years now. I pay nearly $15.00 bucks for a 1 pound bag of my pipe tobacco.

They'll never take my trucks. If they make it against the law to own a gas powered vehicle, i'll just swap in an electric motor and a loud ass P.A system hooked up to the throttle that plays sounds of a built 460 whenever the throttle is applied.

Now there's an idea we all could use.

Yeah they do, but not everyone can afford 30 grand these days. The Prius goes for a little bit less than that, and a Harley is alot more affordable than most people give it credit for. Plus they sound very good to. Harley Davidson motorcycles along with alot of other manufacturers have tripled their sales over the past few years and they've become alot more affordable as well.

Man, you guys see right through the BS!! I'm a little teary eyed with pride...
PGE raised our electric rates. People are using less electricity so the company and the stockholders were seeing less profit.
Same shit, different pigs.

I just love that the fact of the matter is: OIL WILL NEVER DIE!!!

kinda funny how the government pushes this hybrid car bullshit on people. But what did I see the other day that got me thinking.....a city truck. F450! and that got me thinking more, the government has all kinds of big fuel burners, plow trucks, city trucks, construction equipment, those trucks that go around filling pot holes, etc. Lets see them haul around a 12' plow on a prius. Fukcing yuppies. All this hybrid bullshit should just stop. Let the automakers invest in diesel technology, say fukc you EPA!

The only useful thing from a hybrid is as a people mover. For a family, grocery getter, work vehicle, etc. They are COMPLETELY USELESS!!! God dammit Im PISSED now!!!!
