I've just found your site, after it was forwarded to me by a colleague. I work in an air quality program in the Midwest. I'm certainly no gearhead, of any type.

And I have some questions about this group, actually, maybe just one question-- are you at all concerned about the emissions from the vehicles? Just because a vehicle gets great or even amazing fuel mileage doesn't mean it is less polluting. For example, motorcycles produce more emissions than cars, yet generally get much better mileage. EPA established new emissions requirements in motorcycles in 2003, beginning with the 2006 model year; I think it was the first time these had been updated in 25 years.

High mileage is great, but if people are serious about "green" vehicles then you should consider emissions. Maybe it's on the site and I haven't found it yet, if so, please point it out to me.
