True point SVO...

From first hand experience of riding buses to school 15 miles each way for 12 years I am 100% positive bus drivers have to be able to do better on mpg somehow, someway. As I recall my bus driver had their foot on the gas pedal 24/7 the entire ride.

I think it's great there are gov't paybacks to consumers for purchasing hybrids but it would be even cooler if the gov't gave paybacks for % over epa. Pipe dreaming but would still be cool. Although, the oil companies with their claws into gov't would fight it all the way.

Maybe some type of car sensor could track it and when you go to fill up your car you pay less for fuel if your sensor says you are a certain % over EPA. Okay, now I've lost my marbles!
