Ford - worst fuel economy ranking 5 years running.

The fuel economy of the 1903 Model T ford was 25 mpg. The average American Ford for the Year 2003 guzzles 18.8mpg, down from 22.1 in 1998.
    Ford Motor Company is America's oil addict. According the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency, the average fuel efficiency of Ford cars and trucks today is 18.8 mpg, dead last among the top six automakers for the fifth consecutive year. From subcompacts to SUVs, Ford's current fleet of cars and trucks gets fewer miles per gallon on average than its Model-T did 80 years ago. Ford's widely touted 'eco-friendly' Rouge River plant features a water-preserving green roof, yet manufactures 280,000 gas-guzzling F-150s a year, generating up to 100 tons of atmospheric carbon apiece over each truck's lifetime. Marketed as "the first American hybrid," Ford's so-called ‘no compromise' Escape represents less than one half of one percent of its fleet and will have virtually no impact on its last place fuel efficiency ranking. In 2000, Ford promised to improve the fuel efficiency of its fleet of SUVs 25 percent by 2005. In 2003, the company announced its intention to break that promise.

I know this is kind of old news, but I never realized how inefficient Ford was. Other people have been aware of this for a long time, but not enough other people. To learn more about Ford, go to Jumpstart Ford

friend I have a small motor home that really IS my home. It's a ford ('84 model) and gets 6, yes,6 miles to the gallon. Needless to say it is parked most of the time.

It is actually possible to get cars fuelled on natural gas, electricity or vegetable oil. It makes me wonder what the world would be like if all vehicles were fuelled by something other that oil. I doubt Iraq would have been an issue...

But hybrid technology paves the way for plug-in hybrid technology which paves the way for all-electric vehicles.increase miles per gallon, fuel saver, increase gas

mileageStill, hybrids run on gasoline, increase miles per gallon, fuel saver, increase gas mileage which is not an alternative to gasoline no matter
