I noted above that I would have liked to have bought a new truck. Not going to happen with fuel ratings of 12-15 mpg. A Corvette back in the day would get maybe in the mid low teens on a good day on the road. Today they will get in the upper 20's and outperform the old car.
There is no reason we shouldn't have seen similiar gains in other vehicles by now. I can be done. It just hasn't been. It's not acceptable.

Conservatives believe the government is incompetent, and seek to elect people who will prove it
Ignorance is Bliss Bliss is the same as happiness US Christian conservatives are the happiest in the US according to studies Do you see a connection?
We currently can. Companies can equip trucks with small diesel generators to run AC, radio, ect but many do not due to the higher initial cost (several $K) even tho they can pay for themselves in the long run in fuel savings. Like so many things people will avoid because all they see is the $$ now and not the long term advantages.
edit: Oh, you meant percentage. You put the word percentage in the next sentence.
So, to discuss the point he meant to make, I think it's an attainable goal at a reasonable cost. If you've got some industry experts with detailed numbers, I'm interested in seeing them. (not being an engineer and whatnot)
