What would have been a good EcoModder April Fool's joke?

I tried to get Tim to post a thread to the effect of:

Honda's 3rd gen Insight plans revealed:

- an affordable, almost VW XL1 competitor
- aluminum construction with some crabon fliber
- 0.8L, mid engine (for best aero and most entertaining handling: "midship entertainment!")
- 0.21 Cd.
- Lithium pack
- 86 mpg combined (or something semi-believable)

With the recent demise of the 2nd gen Insight, it seemed plausible.

Latest mods: 3-cylinder Mitsubishi Mirage. EcoMods now in progress...
