I'm still in the "FE is more important than emissions." camp myself. If you burn half as much fuel but produce twice as much emissions doing it, you're still ahead because that fuel is not having to be extracted and and pumped and refined and piped and stored and shipped and pumped and burned.
I'm definitely with SentraSE-R on this issue, but you are stating your case very well. Because SentraSE-R doesn't *know* how much he's spewing out his exhaust, he doesn't know if he is violating his principles.
