Today my 2000 Chevy Silverado 4x4 pick up truck will roll over 300,000 miles. I am the original owner and wondered if there was any kind of recognition from Chevy?? My truck is awesome!!!!!!

Why does the USA keep the Bluemotion VW out of US market? Fuel consumption listed on the UK website is 88.3 MPG?

Why is the minivan category not being touched by the Prius type technology? It would be great if the new Scion "van" went with a Prius package. Has anybody seen a Prius that has been modified, enlarged? I have heard their is a new iron based high end battery that is recyclable - any info? thank you!

The Camry outranks the Prius? Please - they are the same price, the same size, yet the Prius has substantially better gas mileage. Plus, it is a hatchback, so it is more flexible as a cargo carrier. There is NO premiumm here for the additional benefits of the hybrid technology. The Prius should be in first place.

Yes, electric-based cars are transferring the energy source from the gas pump to the electric grid,but the electric grid is much more efficient than gasoline; moreover, the electric grid includes a wide range of cleaner energy sources: wind, hydro, natural gas.

Mohan, I've seen reports of this in cars outfitted with humongous battery packs in their trunks that are 'topped off' by plugging them in while at home. But these aren't traditional 'plug in' cars that have a very limited range without plugging in again... They are basically hybrids with an additional battery boost, and when the extra batteries run down they basically perform exactly like a regular hybrid. While these cars can get great mileage, however, they're still consuming a good bit of energy -- it just changes the source from the gas tank to the electric company.

Most people do not realize technology exists that enable hybrids to get 250-300 mpg. My mechanic first tipped me off and have verified it since. This will definitely change the equation and offset the higher price.

Good question... There wasn't one. I'm guessing that the newest revision of the Honda Odyssey (with it's variable cylinder management system) would rate pretty high.

They didn't give a look at the new Toyota Yaris. It puts out comparable numbers to the Corolla, but has an MSRP about $3-4K less.
