I saw a Smart car with a diesel that was imported here before they brought in the gas ones for sale here .
That diesel got 50 mpg on US gallons without even trying. The gas one gets 35 mpg. What a deal. I had an ‘88 Subaru wagon that got 35mpg. we are getting screwed by the oil lobbies that want to keep gas sales up there.

The rich guys making the law ( either party) don’t give a hoot about gas mileage because where ever it goes, they can afford it and they probably write it off any way so it creates no problem for them.

And speaking of the EPA….I had a friend who dismantled a windmill in Mich because it was not efficient with the local wind we have. He sold his stack of car batteries to a junk man here who decided to crack them open and spill the acid on the ground and recycle the lead. The EPA made his property a contamination site and tried to get everyone who SOLD the batteries to the junk guy to pay a fine for HIS actions.This is good reason not go give your real name to oil or battery recyclers

My friend got a bill/fine from the EPA and they constantly called for him to pay it. I told him to do a little foot dragging and call the EPA to see why they wanted all this money from him. The EPA lady said that it was a fine of so much per gallon of acid. He asked her how much acid she figured was in a car battery. She looked on her chart and it said there were 5.3 gallons in a car battery!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

He never paid and they went away….......
