Check this site out very impressive. Toyota is pissed GM did it first the leader in E85 vehicles... Maybe my Bonneville will get converted only 800 bucks! Half serious my next car might be E85! Toyota my have hybrids but GM will run cars off of corn!
Toyota can't say that!

I forget if I heard a radio commerical or one on tv but it was talking about how GM is the leader with E85 cars on the road. It might not be a hybrid but I think it'* a realistic step to becoming less dependant on oil from overseas; given the time frame and current tech.

Anyone try the "Stalk Car Race" game in that link?

Yes GM is, but hey they are the leader in something at least, and something that will help us.

Nope not more expensive when gas was way up it was up actually 60 cents cheaper. Generally runs around 20 cents less. Common mistake most people make yes your fuel economy could go down less, but I think this is more realistic than spending 6 grand to fix a hybrid motor when they go. And no hydrogen is a few years off yet although GM says by 2010 it will be cost effective try 2020 guys. But hey in the near future this looks to be promising at least for E85 and GM... Now I just hope they can sell more cars now that word is out!
