What Is It Like To Drive An Audi A7 TDI?
Nov 26, 2014 - 7:25 PM - by xcel
Kind of like Flying an SR-71 Blackbird!

Wayne Gerdes - CleanMPG - Nov. 26, 2014

2015 Audi A7 TDI Quattro – $69,225 to start incl. D&H while sporting a 24/38 mpgUS city/highway rating.

Today's ride is courtesy of Audi of America and it’s a humdinger.

Most of the time on an away from home press car request, the channels approve the loan and once in a while we get to see the Monroney before we pick up the car. Usually however we only know the make and model. Today's ride request was a little blind in that I did not know the trim, equipment or even the year. That did not really matter when the car is a Audi A7 TDI quattro. And in this... [Read More]

Scientists Concerned About Climate "Fixes"
Nov 26, 2014 - 1:58 PM - by brick
Intentionally altering the atmosphere to cool the planet could have unknown consequences

http://www.cleanmpg.com/photos/data/501/globalwarming5.jpg
David Shukman - BBC - November 25, 2014

As if we haven't put enough junk into our atmosphere already --Ed.

Schemes to tackle climate change could prove disastrous for billions of people, but might be required for the good of the planet, scientists say.

That is the conclusion of a new set of studies into what's become known as geo-engineering. This is the so far unproven science of intervening in the climate to bring down temperatures. These projects work by, for example, shading the Earth from the Sun or soaking up carbon dioxide. Ideas include aircraft spraying... [Read More]

This morning Ford released the EPA results on its all-new aluminum bed Pickup, the 2015 F-150.

Diesel Emissions Under Pressure in UK
Nov 21, 2014 - 10:18 AM - by brick
High NOx levels in cities blamed on diesel vehicles

http://www.cleanmpg.com/photos/data/2/BP_Ultimate_Diesel.jpg
Roger Harrabin - BBC - November 19, 2014

One could look at the Europeans as being victims of their own success in this case. --Ed.

The UK government will come under renewed pressure to cut pollution from diesel vehicles following the latest ruling in a battle over clean air.

Nitrogen dioxide in cities is illegally high and the European Court of Justice ruled judges must force ministers to clean up the air as soon as possible.

The pollutant comes almost entirely from diesel vehicles.

The group that brought the case says the government now has no choice but to restrict... [Read More]
