Thumbs down Eagle Research says 200MPG in 2000lb veh is easy

Extreme Mileage 101 | www.eagle-research.com

200 MPG in a 2000 pound vehicle should be easy according to these guys. I didn't buy the book, and can't recommend anyone else buy it.

In the top link if you click on the picture of the book cover it becomes a pop-up in the middle of your screen. Click the Next button to see a preview of 5 of the pages and you can read some of the claims being made.

Also, look here:

Eagle "Research" is what brought us such gems as George Wiseman and Louis LaPointe.

They've been in the scamming business for decades.

They are not worth two seconds of consideration.
