Math Per Gallon

Automobile manufacturers are being given their marching orders by Congress’ new energy bill, requiring cars, trucks and SUV’s to get 35mpg by the year 2020.

The car makers have had the technology to do this for a while—they’ve just not had enough incentive to apply it. I just wonder what it will take to achieve Congress’ goals: technology or fuzzy math in how the vehicles are measured and rated.
