So many Haters. Just the sight of the words "Fox News" next to a post and the whole thread blows up. I've got news for you. Fox News carries more than twice the viewers of the next rated news channel. Almost as many viewers as the other three put together. Don't judge Fox by the stupid, arguing shows that all the channels put out on Sunday mornings. If you really want to know the truth of what is going on in the world, tune in to Fox in prime time once a week on Friday night for a dose of reality.

All that means is there are many stupid viewers.

The reason so any people watch Fox is because it is one of the few places you will get both sides. If you only listen to CNN, the 3 networks, PBS, and MSNBC you will not hear 1/2 of what's going on. By Fox simply putting out the other side they are hated. I personally never watch Fox anymore, there are better ways to quickly get the news during the day leaving my evening tv viewing open to watch people in Alaska do stuff.

^This. So many times I've read online news stories from many American sources, then I go look at the same story on The Daily Mail or some foreign source and their story will have twice the information.

I no longer watch TV news since I refuse to pay for cable. It is easy to put a ideological spin on technology when it involves energy and big business. We are living in a bipolar society. One has to gather information from a number of sources from Forbes to PBS.

Diesel electric systems have been proven in train engines. Ecomodders have shown that good ideas can be developed without spending a ton of money. That is not to say world class research is not being done in corporate facilities. I have worked in labs that are funded at $1,000 USD per day and I also work in my basement at home.

So, we do not have anything else to say about the truck? My first thought was exactly what Spacemanspiff wrote.

13.4 MPG.


12.2 MPG.
9.8% better.

Do the images appear squished to anyone else?

They definitely reduced the size of the mirrors compared to the trucks on the road today, but I'd think with 115million they'd experiment with cameras instead of mirrors. I would think with the amount of miles that go on these trucks that the extra aero savings would pay itself back in no time.
