Too bad that bus doesn't run on marijuana smoke. I know someone I work with who hung with Willie one time on his tour bus. He has several empty cans of Folgers coffee en tow on that bus. There are no coffee grinds in those canisters.

It's about being SOCIALLY RESPONSIBLE. It has nothing to do with politics or anyone telling you what to do. IN MY OPINION, you're a moron if you think it's okay to drive a hummer, but go ahead if that's what makes you happy, "it's a free country".
It is a free country and people love to use that as an excuse. There is just no excuse for being wasteful.

Default Wow..what do you drive

my current diesel is as quiet as any car on the road, does not spew any black smoke and gets over 30 mpg in variable traffic and almost 40 mpg on long highway runs, I bet your truck barely does 19 mpg at any time, try finding a decent sized vehicle than can match those numbers and then we can talk about who really is a fuel hog

That's pretty awesome...what do you drive?

are you alluding to al gore who flys around in one of those jets preaching his nonsense?

'05 mecerdes benz e320 cdi, it is legal in 45 states and now marketed as a "blutec" engine, volkswagon has their TDI that puts up similar numbers and as someone noted cars like this are common in europe where almost half the cars sold are these new advanced diesels. Americans are clueless about diesels, I've had people act hysterical when I am fueling because they've never seen a car like mine that runs on diesel and they think I am using the wrong fuel, and I had one guy really lose it when I put some kero in because I was going up to canada in the winter, kero cuts the fuel and makes if flow better in sub zero temps

Could you imagine being a passenger in that vehicle, and the same football player happens to break wind while you are in there?

Just invision that! Biodiesel can take on an entirely new dimension!

Yes, but it is hardly confined to just Al Gore. This summer, I was out in the Hamptons while Hillary was doing her fund raising weekend. Not a minute went by when there wasn't a private jet flying overhead. As someone who goes out there fairly often, I can say that it was far beyond the typical weekend in the Hamptons. These "limousine liberals" think nothing of flying these jets all over the place and telling us we should drive a prius.

Oh see what I started the whole Al Gore thing and my car is better than your car. Willie Nelsons pot smoke could probably produce enuf power to give New Jersey enuf power for a year. I need tylenol after trying to figure out Scrantons math quiz. LOL
