That and mail trucks! I wonder what the government was thinking when they continue to operate those gas only vehicles where a hybrid or electric would be perfect for it. I also wonder why they still use steelies, when they could be running lightweight alloys. Lightweight wheels would likely have a fairly quick payoff, and help improve acceleration, something those trucks do a lot.
