That's often mentioned when people lament the lack of progress in fuel economy, but then you have to ask yourself why we've obviously progessed so much in every category but fuel economy...The only real answer is that we've never tried to progress much anywhere else. CD players, ABS, heated steering wheels, but fuel economy? nah,
