Thank you. That's the nicest thing anyone has said to me about cars since I
bought a Prius.
The article was about eliminating gas and diesel cars in GERMANY, but for some
reason people thought it was about doing so in America which is highly unlikely
for the reasons given.
Personally, I like having a very economical, but rough riding, gas burner such
as a Prius when fuel prices are high, and a very old, easy to fix, smooth
riding Mercedes diesel to drive when fuel prices are low.
