      The manual transmission is heavier than the automatic?? That sounds weird to me.

      Interesting math. 2 examples

      200hp car gets 50 mpg: 4 hp / mpg
      200hp car gets 10 mpg: 20 hp / mpg

      20 > 4, so the 10mpg car is more efficient!

      VW likes the DSG in its less sporty cars for efficiency reasons. This is important in Europe where every drop of fuel seems to count.

      Detroit Diesel Series 50 owns the 4BT... 8.5L 4 cyl. It was frequently used in transit buses.

      Membership in the local business that sells fuel. It generally works out to be ~8% cash back, paid out once yearly.

      There are often exceptions for law enforcement and emergency personnel when it comes to cell phone laws. Surprised at how many people don't realize this.

      It's probably more efficient and better insulated. The high floor seats are much warmer in my experience.

      I miss the high floors, feels like there is more space in them. I think there probably is since people can sit on top of the front wheel wells in them compared to low floors where the wheel wells...

      CBR125? Had one for 2 years, my lifetime mpg was somewhere around 95 US MPG. Had several tanks over 100 in warmer months. Sold it after 2 years for around $2k CAD. But for a 3mi commute I'd...

      I think it would use the same CVT design as the other Toyota and Lexus hybrids, which is simply a planetary gearset. Very simple and reliable, probably even moreso than a conventional transmission. ...

      Look at those knobby tires on the truck. I'm sure the Touareg has tires which grip the road better. These tests basically come down to who has better traction, not who has more power.

      VW already gives Canadians a 4 year warranty instead of the 3 year warranty Americans get. We give up the free maintenance though.

      Realize that a 30 year old car is *not* going to give you "good" gas mileage, diesel or not. It is rated at 21 combined mpg, roughly on par with a modern day gas minivan.
