ACEEE Ranks Diesel Touareg "Meanest" for Environment

http://www.msnbc.msn.com/id/4229825/

Obviously, a V10 diesel is going to emit quite a bit of pollution, but I hope we're not forced to drive the cars on the "greenest" list any time soon.

I think the entire rating was based on the type of exhaust a diesel emits. It smoked everything else on the list in terms of gas mileage. Especially the 9MPG HIGHWAY you get from a Murcielago. :D

Why not ? other car manufacturers have caught onto to this already.

How is that wacko??

If everyone in America drove 5 mpg 1975 1 Ton Chevy pickup trucks, you don't think we'd need a bit more oil from overseas??

Compare the two statements above. Which one makes sense???

Hey, I get 70 mpg driving to work everyday. Can you guess what my other car is????
