Bumper sticker ethics

I'd like to make some stickers for my sideskirts since they get so much attention

I was thinking along this lines, but would like suggestions

Got 50mpg?

TDI killer

Hybrid eater

50mpg, really!

100hp+plastic car=50mpg

100hp+driver mod=50mpg


Ethics gets involved when I say "TDI killer". Could I conclude from the add below that mileage is equal/superior to the average TDI?

How about a picture of a gas pump with the text "I pass more gas".

lovemysan -

You could go for the "I want to help you" version :

I Get 50 MPG!
Ask Me How!

I like the "Got 50 mpg?" also . An abbreviated "Driver mod = 50 mpg" would be good .

I do like these - simple and to the point: MPG Stick!

Besides, from looking at your numbers I'm gonna have to say you're not "killing" even the average TDI.

I agree why be confrontational. Your doing ok with the Saturn just keep it positive. You might be close to some TDI or hybrids but maybe try to spread a message that get everyone thinking on better mileage instead of rubbing it in that your getting better MPG than a very few. YMMV
