I know - sigh....... :-/

What just kills me is after a couple of decades of "new technology", and supposed big pushes towards energy efficiency, they STILL aren't making any plain ol' non-hybrid cars that can beat the MPG of something like a little Geo Metro or Honda hatchback. Yet the ads on TV are BRAGGING about this or that new, efficient car that gets 38 mpg. . . . . PLEASE!!!! When my Swift's MPG got DOWN to about 38 is about when I decided I had to replace the engine!!!
