Trade Your Gas Guzzler...

http://www.orlandosentinel.com/class...7995738.column

the author is not an environmentalist, conservationist, economist, nor anything vaguely resembling them. he is an auto enthusiast! it seems some are starting to get it.

BTW, directly next to this article in the printed version is a Q & A section. the first question is by a 2004 corvette owner asking if it's ok to use 87 octane in this car, HIS DAILY COMMUTER vehicle. his commute is 99% city driving, rarely exceding 25mph.

i would have told him his car accepts E85, and to use straight corn oil until E85 makes it to orlando.

after reading the article again, i can appreciate the author's recommendations...

he is specific in suggesting an economy car for commuters, not a FWD SUV or a mid-size sedan. he even breaks down certain brand names and gives honda recognition for being a perennial FE manufacturer.

and he even goes so far as to support the purchase of a 4cyl truck if a truck is in fact needed and will fit the need.
