Years ago I had I VW Camperbus that took us to many wonderful places, but that unreliable sumbitch never got more than about 15mpg! It also had to beat itself to death keeping up with traffic, burned valves regularly and was the only car I ever owned where you had to consider a total engine rebuild as routine maintainance. And yet, old VWs, old Volvos, and Subarus that operate on old emission (or no) standards are the darlings of the enviros today. Now I have a modern, reliable SUV that takes me anywhere I want to go with total reliablity and meets modern emission criteria. On the freeway with cruise it will get 20mpg with a V8. I've noticed that those who think of SUVs as the "Great Satan" never have the guts to show the same hatred for pickup trucks. Maybe we need gun racks (with some serious firepower) in the back windows of our Jeeps and Toyotas and then those dorks will think twice about being so sanctimonious and hypocritical about SUVs and terrorism.
