Goodbye For Now
Authored by: pub3abn on Oct 06, '07 08:09:53PM

My point was that SUVs like mine are not worse than many non-SUVs, and therefore the focus on SUVs is misleading; better to focus on actual fuel efficiency. I've been hunting for a more energy efficient vehicle (and still am), but was surprised to learn that many of the vehicles listed as energy efficient by third parties were scarcely better than what I already own.

Here is a government website rating cars by fuel efficiency. If you select the Family Sedan size for the current year 2008, you will see that of the 60-some family sedans listed, only about 5 do significantly better (4 mpg or better) than my Jeep Cherokee SUV. In fact, most of the sedans are in exactly the same range as most of the SUVs. As a matter of fact, there are more SUVs with fuel efficiency >= 25 mpg than family sedans >= 25 mpg.
