If the road tax, was actually used for roads. We could cut the tax in half.
Ah, but the GOP Establishment wants us to concentrate on the truly important question: “Is anybody kissing us?”.
Rat bastards. This is one of the best examples of citizen journalism I’ve seen.
Ummm. I checked the VW UK website and the MPG rating is in liters.
The cars are American made in Chattanooga, TN.
One imperial gallon is approximately equal to 1.201 U.S. gallons.
One imperial gallon is exactly 4.54609 litres, whereas one U.S. gallon is exactly 3.7854118 liters.

Yeah, turn it off because it’s just so much taurusfimus. 78 miles per gallon? If that was true, VW would show its middle finger to the U.S. gov’t, import the cars and sell them anyway. They’d make bank in a week. Every Prius owner would turn in their car and buy the VeeWee. There would be such a back order problem, VW would have to import them from all over the world to keep up with demand. Enviro-Nazis like the Sierra Club, AGore, and the wildlife folks would be rending their clothes and gnashing their teeth that the Big Three products weren’t as good. This would be all over the news and you can bet that the liberals and their old media bootlickers wouldn’t miss the opportunity to find a way to “prove” a link to this “environmental crime” on Reagan, Bush41 or Bush43.
There is no such thing as the “hidden patent” for the 100 mile per gallon carburator. Remember that load of crap? This guy’s a schmuck.
According to the Volkwagen UK site it is (mpg per 100km). According to the BlueMotion Technology 1.6 TDI 105PS motor (best milage of all the ones listed) it is 80.7 mpg per 100 km. That would calculate to just over 50 mpg. Still pretty good.
Here’s the site:
Due to the differences between Imperial and US gallons…
The average of 68.9 MPIG is equivelant to 57.37 US MPG.
Angry Monkey, their site says MPG/ltr per 100km.
That would be miles per gallon/litres per 100 kilometers. Two different things.
At any rate, I think the disparity is because of the differenc between Imperial and US gallons.
I see what you mean. The highest rated motor is 3.4 liters. Converted over is just over 69 mpg (Very good indeed).
Thanks for the lesson.
It is the government’s job to screw people, and in fact we pay the government a hell of a lot of money to be the best screws they can possibly be.
If the government didn’t publicly screw someone like this guy once in a while, people would be up in arms bitching about what lousy screws the government have become, what shitty value the People were getting for all of the screwing money they spent, and demanding at the top of their lungs that the government find someone immediately, and screw ‘em as hard as possible in order to get the word around to the rest of government to stop wasting money on such lousy screwing.

This should surprise no one here. We know this government has been out to screw us at ever step of the way. And we keep letting them do it. Insane.
Even 50mpg would signal the death of alternative vehicles one again. 3 card Monty anyone?

There is a mpg difference between cars sold here and in other countries. It’s worse here because of the required pollution and safety gear that is largely absent in foreign countries. The cars just weigh more here.
