Flawed study, but pretty pictures.

With the exception of the Jeep Grand Cherokee, few if any owners of these boutique cars are going to rack up the 15,000 miles a year necessary to tickle the Estimated Annual Fuel Cost.

More interesting would have been if they had put in the hundreds of thousands of Crown Vics or Suburbans and other full sized cars/trucks that Cities, States and Feds use on a regular basis, racking up 50,000+ miles per year when a smaller, more efficient car would serve the same purpose.


Being smart is knowing the difference, in a sticky situation between a well delivered anecdote and a well delivered antidote - bear.
