After seeing this on more than one occasion, truck manufacturers have made it on the blog.
Ford or GM or Toyota or Mazda or whoever is touting that their truck is the “most fuel efficient V8 in its class.”
Maybe I’m alone on this, but I never associated V8 engines with fuel efficiency. What I have associated them with is their owners.
The “never use the bed to haul anything, pavement loving, dirt hating, global consumption skyrocketing” truck owners who care more about their convenience than anyone else around them. Before you turn away in disgust, I think trucks serve a purpose…IF. If you are a contractor, own your own company, or use the back of your truck to haul something business related, 5 days a week, you should have a truck. You use it for what it was intended for.
If however, you own one of these monstrous wastes of money, natural resources and parking only to be able to put a semi-transparent, American flag/eagle mural on your back window, the federal government should fine you. A) Because you’re not using the vehicle as it was intended. B) Because you and your buddies are contributing to the highest gas prices ever and C) Because the only thing tackier than those American flag/eagle murals are the magnetic ribbons that adorn your tailgate.
(Tucks soapbox away)
My original point being…V8’s are not fuel efficient.
Coming to an ad campaign near you…HUMMER H3 – The most fuel efficient vehicle in it’s class.
