I read a review of a test
I read a review of a test drive in that tunnel so to speak and it said something about having to sign a wavier.
The FFH should be a real mileage king in its class. I don't know how much of this new "Reverse Fake Shift" technique played, but I may have an over 700 mile tank at close to 54mpg. I still have about 150 miles to go on this tank, but this will be a record tank in a FEH I think. This is with E10 so straight gas will give much higher numbers. Not that everyone will hypermile the FFH, but clearly it should get 41mpg with little trouble.
Toyota is now claiming the Prius is a mid-size sedan and wants Ford to compare the FFH to the Prius which is 600 pounds lighter. Ford claims, the last time they checked, the Prius didn't have a trunk so it's not a sedan.
The waiver was a standard
The waiver was a standard liability waiver. You also had to take a breathalizer (seriously) before getting behind the wheel.
Here is an article and some
Here is an article and some nice pictures of the auto show:
Just because we had fun at the Detroit Auto Show doesn't mean there weren't somber moments. In fact, most moments were. Here are the 11 most depressing moments from the 2009 Detroit Auto Show.
