"Too bad they didn't continue the trend from back then to now.MPG's could be much higher than they are now." Actually, for a little while, they did just that, but stopped doing that around 2003. If you remember, some of the Dodges, GMs, Fords, VW, Toyotas, Hondas, Nissans, GEOs, Mitsubishis and others were getting 36 to 48 mpg and more. Some were getting 50 to 55 mpg as late as the mid to late 1990's and up to 2002-2003 with the Tercel and Echo. They don't want us to have vehicles on the road getting 70 to 150+ mpg in this country, but we could have had them already. They stop it from happening.
