Just to clarify...

In my last post, I'm not talking about our specific situation. Barring some unexpected circumstances, I don't think we'll be buying a new vehicle any time soon. And by "new," I mean used. Brand new is right out for a long list of reasons.

I just thought it was surprising that save a lot more gas going from 10 to 20 mpg than from 25 to 50.

Just another piece of the puzzle to consider if you are trying to change vehicles, like a lot of people are right now.

I hear that a bicycle gets the equivalent of about 1500 mpg.

No word on what kind of mileage these get:

The second and third photos (surreycompany.com and rhoadescar.com) are pretty pricey at $2-3k apiece.

But the first one is actually a kit that you can apparently build for under $500. Less if you can get a couple salvage bikes on the cheap. More info at americanspeedster.com. He's even got plans for putting an electric motor in it...

Those have to be the coolest things I've seen in...months, at least.
