    Diesel motorcycles have been doing 150+mpg since the 40s. Not trying to shit on the stage, I just think it's funny how this technology isn't anything really special. A clean Hybrid diesel should get over 120mpg in a 2000 lbs car without outsourcing engineering.

    yeah, but if you have car companies in cohorts with oil manufacturers, you are going to have a hard time getting that power to the people. i'm a firm believer in oil conspiracies. i also think we could have had 100% efficient vehicles a long time ago.

    greed, money, and power corrupt the demands of the people and society.

    Gasoline just makes so much energy vs. other sources. It's amazing.

    yes this is great but it is coming from a company who has an electrical system that if a stiff breeze blows on it it sets off a check engine light and catches the car on fire. unless there electrical system and hybrid technology was made by some one else i would run not walk away from one of those.
