LTK?

I suppose that's milage, right?

I drive an A6 with a TDI engine and at 200km/h it does roughly 30-32 mpg.

I drove an Expedition in the States for a short while. It did 12-15 mpg at 70 mph.

Yes..I live in the states and would not drive one.. Expedition that is.
I had no idea that an A6 could get that good of milage at 120mph..I had a CBR 1000 that never even came close to that at 120mph+..

I think only Americans drive gas guzzling dinosaurs because lots of rich people live there, and they can afford to feed them ( MB S600, MB SL600, BMW 760Li, etc )

My goverment pulled out some of 30 years old gasoline subsidy due to oil price crisis lately, now we paid USD 2.28 / gl. and increasing

Let's see how much longer you can with the fuel prices being so high.
Just read a press release from GM on how their sales in the SUV market is dropping because of the fuel prices, and how Toyota, Honda and Nissan are rapidly gaining market shares for the same reason.

Btw, did you know that a tropical storm can only form if the water temperature is above 27C?
The average water temperature in the Carribean has been rising every year due to global warming.
Global warming is caused by CO2 emissions of which the US produces 30%.

Have you noticed how hurricane season starts earlier each year?

When I moved to SC in '95, the first hurricanes usually formed at the end of August, this year it was in the middle of June, right?

But hey, who gives a s..t, we are rollin' high, ain't we?

Keep driving those gas guzzlers and have fun with it......

So how much hydro carbons do Gerbals and Molerats produce?

Anyways perhaps if we Americans cut down on the Chili cookoffs that 30% number may go down significantly. (Haven't you noticed the rise in antacids in the American diet lately? SUVs may not be the only cause )
