High MPGs

So huge gas guzzlers have become malignantly taboo, why as Americans havenít we been offered better options for curbing our consumption, here is a quick look at whatís available globally in the hunt for better mpgs

Toyota Urban Cruiser

Euro version of the Scion XD has a combined mileage of 52.8 U.S mpg, the AWD version gets 48

Nissan Qashqai

Global versions of the Qashqai make 56 U.S mpg compared to North American versions that only deliver 26 mpg!!! Diesel fuel is a major cause of the discrepancy, but a 30 mpg difference is borderline insane.

Volkswagon Blue Motion TDI Passat Wagon

Kids to soccer, groceries, long jaunts to the beach? No worries the TDI Passat makes an obscene 65.4 U.S mpg. The Passat is actually manufactured in Amerika and shipped overseas

All of these vehicles are banned by the Federal government citing safety concerns, but it certainly feels more sinister than thatÖ so yea...

The only thing that could possibly relate to the mustang is the new eco boost four cylinder that will be implemented in to the new 50th anniversary model.

GOBS of torque could be had if the blown 4 was coupled with electric motors at each wheel. the S550 would be out of the hole before the other guy even finds first

There is no replacement for displacement

Good mileage with a big motor doesn't exist.

You need gas to make power. You can improve efficiency but you can't change the fact that the air to fuel and compression along with total displacement is what makes power.

Fuel is part of the equation. If you want a eco friendly car I wouldn't look at getting a Mustang.

You could get the 4 cylinder Mustang if that rows your boat.
