Not if Bush and the The Big Oil conspiracy have their way!

This (100 mpg) is good stuff. One thing I'd be interested in knowing is the degree to which the efficiency change may also still be based on structural elements; the original Honda Insight actually made many of its increases through improved aerodynamics, smaller wheel base, etc.

One thing the ethanol discussion ahead has not yet mentioned: recycled fast-food oil. And you can usually get it for free, without any engine conversions, provided you don't mind your car smelling like a giant french fry.
