http://MPGomatic.com takes a ride in a 2012 Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric car. We check out a bunch of huge solar array installations and look for public charging stations. The solar energy business is booming in New Jersey, but we lag far behind when it comes to electric vehicle charging stations.
Why are electric cars important? This keynote from James Woolsey, former director of the CIA will help to shed light ...
2014 Ford Fiesta SFE EcoBoost 1.0L MPG Road Test
We put a remarkable new 1.0 liter EcoBoost Ford Fiesta to a three-part MPG Road
Test. Can the tiny three-cylinder turbocharged engine deliver 40 MPG? 50 MPG? 60
It all depends on how, when, and where you drive it ...
The first leg of the road test is a round trip from central NJ to Pottstown
PA, primarily on Interstate Highway 78. The second leg is a run from
Allentown, NJ to Long Beach Island through the Jersey Pinelands on Route
539 to Route 72, over the Causeway. The third leg is a trip up the Jersey
Turnpike into Manhattan, via the Holland Tunnel.
The 2014 Ford Fiesta 1.0L EcoBoost
is a $995 option. It is only available on the SE model and is only offered
with a five-speed manual transmission.
I'll post a link to my full review in the Autobytel channel once it's ready
2015 VW Golf TDI MPG Highway Road Test
MPGomatic.com takes a new 2015 Volkswagen Golf TDI for a highway MPG road
The 2015 Golf TDI uses a brand new 2.0L turbo diesel engine that is rated at 150 horsepower. The official EPA
fuel economy estimates are 30 city / 45 highway MPG. The EPA has been
historically conservative when rating diesel engines. With a wee bit of
skill and restraint, you can leave those numbers in the dust ... =)
This VW Golf TDI is equipped with the six-speed DSG automatic transmission.
Honda Civic Build - Project SLAMBO HX Preview - Ain't Fuelin'!
Say hello to SLAMBO!
She's an original owner five-speed manual 1999 Honda Civic HX Coupe with
122K on the clock. Relatively well preserved, but stinky, Slambo rolled in
festooned with a bunch of cheap shiny bits. And a slam (hence, the name).
This is the first (low-buck!) build for our new series, Ain't Fuelin' ...
stay tuned as we rip it up and put it back together.
2013 Hyundai Veloster Turbo Review : MPGomatic
MPGomatic.com puts a six-speed manual 2013 Hyundai Veloster turbo to a grueling 500+ mile test drive. We
switched things up a bit with this review, and have included a demo of the
Blue Max and Eco-Coach features along with our usual 0-60 MPH and fuel
economy testing. It's in HD, as well. :) Big screen and Big MPGs, woo hoo!
The Hyundai Veloster turbo is equipped
with a turbocharged 16-valve Dual-CVVT
1.6-liter inline four-cylinder engine producing 201 horsepower and 195 pound
feet of torque. The intercooled and gasoline direct-injected (GDI) four
banger cranks out more than sixty HP and seventy pound feet of torque over
the naturally-aspirated 2012 Veloster we tested earlier this year.
A six-speed manual transmission is standard in the Veloster turbo, while a six-speed automatic is optional.

Mitsubishi i-MiEV road test from Consumer Reports
The Mitsubishi i-MiEV electric car is the most efficient car Consumer
Reports has tested. But driving this glorified golf cart is more of a chore
than a pleasure. The Mitsubishi i-MiEV is best left for urban errands. See
how the i-MiEV compares to other electric and hybrid cars:

James Allen test drives the Mitsubishi i-MiEV
James Allen drops Formula One commentating duties for a week to test drive
the current Mitsubishi i-MiEV pure electric car in and around London. James
gives his own personal appraisal of what it's like to own the i-MiEV,
identifying both pros and cons.
Apologies for the bumpy in-car footage, caused by a heavy SLR camera on a
long arm rather than a rough ride from the i-MiEV.

Test driving the Mia Electric car in Luxembourg!

There aren't that many electric cars on the market, although hybrid
vehicles are growing in popularity, and even fewer that are truly 100%
electric. Even less are totally designed from scratch, not based on any
other car, and only one, a new company with this exact mission, has just
launched in Luxembourg -- The Mia Electric.

Kaylor Motor Adaptor Electric Car Kit. This is installed in a 69 VW Ghia.
We are testing a modern controller to power the old Starter/Generator
motors for these Kits. These conversion kits were specifically built for
the old VW platform. They work great but work best on the old fiberglass
