A friend of mine is thinking about buying one of those. I'm trying to 
get him to buy a diesel VW. Great mileage, not full of batteries, and 
engine life to be envied. And...they're fast!

Hey - he's doing his part. He's made a decision about how he wants to 
live his life, and is making sure that his needs/wants/etc. don't have 
an impact on you or those we're borrowing the earth from.


(and the Ford Expedition - whatever that huge, 10mpg thing is - that I 
was following up the highway one day at 100 was better. I didn't know it 
would go that fast. He was probably pushing about 6mpg with that speed.)
