Air miles per gallon of jet fuel

The problem here is not that one metric is better than the other, it is that the general public is unable (or unwilling) to apply critical thought when making the comparison. Switching to ltr/100km would do very little to improve peoples’ decisionmaking and cost a great deal.

Well if we had the electric car back, which needed no gallons at all and ran like a dream, we wouldn’t care about mpg or gpm! Electric cars were the perfect solution to our oil woes, and they were crushed like bugs as a threat to the industry.

Actually, the difference between 34 mpg and 54 mpg for 10K Miles is ~109 Gallons. And I am not sure I would call this “a series of experiments”, nothing more than some simple calculations….

What started in the summer of 2008 as an ambitious project to create a do-it-yourself, 100 miles-per-gallon sports car within a budget of $10,000 has come full circle. MAX (Mother’s Automotive eXperiment) now has more than 100,000 miles in its logbook and consistently achieves 100 mpg at speeds from 45 to 55 mph.

The project proves triple-digit fuel efficiency is feasible — even on a tight budget, and especially if you build your own car. If I can make a 100-mpg car in my Oregon garage, what could the major automakers be giving us?

That said, it’s important to understand upfront that MAX is not comparable to a modern sedan, with all of the creature comforts most drivers expect. But it doesn’t need to be.

Did the world not go green because of a murder? Maybe 2 murders?

The world is telling us to Go Green; from Sesame Street to the Campaign Trail, and Going Green has become as much a marketing tool as a call for action. But what most American’s don’t know is that these problems were solved thirty years ago by the brilliant invention of a Texas high school dropout.

“No. Not any more. I’ve had too much publicity. If I’d kept my invention a secret I might be worrying. But there’s nothing to worry about any more.”

Tom said the 100 mpg returns he was seeing on his then standard 4,000 pound car was only the beginning of his newfound fuel efficiency. Tom felt confident that on the smaller, lighter cars, then only popular in Europe, he could get nine times as much.
