That's the funny part of it. The KJV -- at the time of original publication -- was criticized for using what was even then archaic language. The Authorized Versions since then have undergone in excess of 60,000 changes to the text.

Good idea to state as simply as possible, given organization that leads from one thing to another.

Thine manual transmission shalt be in gear only when accelerating.

Thou shalt turn thy engine off whilst coasting.

Our Basjoos
Who art in Carolina
Hallowed be thy civic
Give us each day our daily FE
and forgive us our overtakes
for we ourselves shake our head at those who overtake us
And lead is not into the passing lane
For thine is the fuel log
The aero and the coasting
For at least 2-3 miles
Amen.

A reading from the letter of "Philip Lessoften" to the "SUVittes"

Lo and behold, thy pain at the pump is thy own doing. In thy quest for acceptance, ye have lost sight of the one true path. A family of 4 does not needith a 7 passanger motorized carrage for use in the urban enviroment. Such excessiveness shall be thy downfall when the Gas Man takes his due

Instead, take thy inspiration from nature. Does not nature forsake the slow lumbering wastefull beast for the agile and efficient animals? So too should you forsake the large thirsty transportation for a quick and efficient. And thy own joy will be shared by all.
