My 2007 Dodge Ram 1500 4x4 quad cab Hemi has multi displacement and still it gets no better mpg than the Judge.
Just wait until these greeners go to get those prius etc, batteries serviced or replaced.
No way in hell am I going to drive a Prius or any other hybrid. Mainly because by the time one depreciates enough I can afford it, the battery pack will need replacing and that is more than I cant to pay for a used car. Secondly they are soulless life sucking appliances, so incredibly slow and still uses gasoline that they are permanently in my why bother category.
Green doesnt have to mean slow, boring, and/or electric. Green can mean 500hp/tq and 30mpg just not using gasoline. It can mean running the 72cc heads on a 455 and it lasting forever. The cool thing is we dont have to give up our GTOs, we just have to make some small adjustments to them and we could drive them more. It wont be long and I will be able to get the new 455 out on the road, just another month or so, two at most. Then I can show you videos and pics of what it takes and what the benefits are.
I dont want gas prices to hit $4 anymore than anyone else, because of what it does to slow everything down. I do want people to start thinking about alternatives that are actually better for your car than gas, cheap/easy to produce, and make more power while being better for all of us.
Just imagine driving around every day in a car with 14:1 compression and lots of bottom end torque. If you have ever driven a 455 with small chamber heads you know what I am drooling over... You dont have to be a tree hugging hippie to enjoy the benefits of green thinking. Done right you can be healthier, have more money in savings, and be able to drive your GTO wherever you want.
Now if we are forced to use gasoline, then yeah we will all end up in a Prius or something like it just to get around. I dont want to see that any more than you guys do.
