1,000,000,000 for 100? : John talked about a contest where you would get 1 billion dollars for making a car that got 100 miles to a gallon of gas. He wanted to know our thoughts on it. Well here's mine.
I believe the technology to manufacture this car is already there. Our motorcycle gets 50 MPG right now. It is not a small engine. It is powerful enough to pull a trailer behind it. It was made in 1996. We looked at some new ones and some of them are getting 70 plus MPGs!
What I think the problem is ...who will buy them? Who can afford them? The cheapest car I found is 2007 ChevroletAveo Compact Sedan
City: 26 mpg
Hwy: 34 mpg
