i wish we could get the same clean diesels as the UK. the focus over there gets a combined mpg of 83. we should be allowed to have that too

How do you magically generate "pure" electricity?

The internal combustion engine only operates at 25% efficiency, where as electric motor vehicles operate at 75% efficiency.

Just a question, how much money does the gov needs to fullfil all their needs about transportation..Is the Tag/ registration just for road and highway maintenance?! Furthermore why you pay tax on something that you already own, like your car or house?

it is very simple ( like the people who LOVE these things) our fuel taxes are supposed to be used to repair the roads, when EV's become prevalent the Gov't will have to find another way to tax use of the roads so we will end up with tracking devices on our vehicles ( only for the purpose of assessing the tax NOT!!! ) just another way to have our freedoms removed!

If we can get algae diesel going, and get rid of imported diesel, using only our algae/bio/dino fuels, and then make tdi/plug-in electric hybrids, we would have the best of all worlds......

as s master mechanic I can tell you that alternative fuel cars and trucks are 100% more expensive to repair then regular gas and diesel engines

Thad, it's the governments way of making more money off the long haul truckers who have no choice in what they buy. The cost is just passed along to the customer at the other end.

Absolutely they are. And all of the BS emissions crap that they are requiring is doing nothing but adding to the issue.

Im wondering why diesel is so expensive when it is mote plentiful and cheaper to produce. It use to be the cheapest fuel at the pump now it is more then premium. Most of the hot rodders around here are moving to e85 with little or no notice in the driving experience. I have a turbo 86 mustang running 400hp on e85 . I guess the government will tax that to make it not a viable alternative also.

the government has a good decision!! eco diesel not exist!!! the particulate filter is a great source of pollution, in my country 70 per cent of vehicles are diesel, with huge pollution problems and mechanical problems. many people return to gas, propane, hibryd,also on commercial vehicles, , the government has a good decision, clean diesel does not exist, does not make our mistake!!
