Maybe it's what cars will start to look like when OEMs get forced to reduce actual FC.

With Europe's NEDC being run on a stationary dyno, the boattail doesn't have any benefits in their fancy regulations world.
It will start to accelerate!

We are the pioneers, here at EM and as gas prices go higher, and people feel the sting, they will be way more receptive to projects like this.

Already we have several people here at work who talk about gas mileage and how to increase it. One of the staff, who is still in college, is a team member in a hybrid high mileage vehicle program.

It's already happening. I still think of AeroCivic, and the impression he made on me with his car!! For me, that's what got the ball rolling.
