What I'm trying to say is that more people might focus on FE, if they could cut also cut down on their drive time. I never said change the limits for existing vehicles, just up the speed limit if you drive something that gets over 120mpg (and of course where it wouldn't be stupid to do so).

That vid is pretty cool Bry, I kept waiting for him to run out of gears, 0 to 150mph in 4 minutes
