    Not the same thing at all. Let me add malware, keystroke loggers, and trackers to your computers. I bet you'd like that fine.

    Ah but heres the thing. My 8,000 lb duramax is bumping up against 20 mpg. Let say the mini gets 40 it tips the scales at 2500 with your dogs stuff in it. The mini would have to get 70 MPG to see the same efficiancy per pound/Gal. If you wanted the mini hauled to the trial it may take away 3-4 mpg. Its all relative since everyone is paying 40 cents a gallon fuel tax ad ad a nickel for diesel. BTW one can still convert fry greese for around 90 cents a gallon. If I was a dealer I would by a stand alone laptop that only went to their site and when finished with the program put in the trunk of the last clunker on the way to the shredder.

    Of course there are limitations, but we are nowhere near the maximum efficiency of the int. combustion engine. I was using the example the other post mentioned of 50+mpg in the past, and extrapolating that to our trucks. I"ll stand by my bet that someday we will see those better numbers...

    Please code3, let loose, please tell us what you really think. Don't hold back, let it all go. I suspect you harbour a simmering fear and anger, that must be released, and if not, maybe directed towards violence in
    some other venue. I hope not to hear of you on some evening broadcast, after shooting x # of innocent victims, before turning the gun on yourself.
    My thoughts and prayers are with you brother.
