Oh, yeah.....Kalifornia.....the State that is BILLIONS in debt, over-run by non-english speakers and sex deviates, and losing ALL the population that can actually think for themselves and earn a living without siphoning off others......what a concept!
Now, with 200mpg, riding roller skates on the Freeways; what a GREAT idea (FOR KALIFORNIA).

Mary Nichols is a joke! California is the “land of the SUV, and the Pickup.” Now that the state has quit “sweetening the pot” for Prius buyers with the ending of the “carpool lane stickers” for these clown cars, no one is buying them. Even here in California the “producers” still want a safe, comfortable car. When ( and if) we get to 54 mpg cars, they are going to be a drug on the market. SUVs are the byproduct of “mandating” the station wagon out of existence with the original CAFE standards.

People like Mary Nichols and CARB are a huge part of what's wrong in California. There is simply no reason for CARB to even exist any more. They are a duplication of EPA. Other states don't have equivalents (at least none that I'm familiar with).
Mary Nichols is a complete idiot and buffoon with no scientific or technical training. She's the type of crackpot who started working for busy body government organizations right after she got out of law school (wouldn't you just know it). Now it was super-jerk Arnold Schwarzenegger who appointed this clown to CARB. For all of you who voted for Arnold (and you know who you are), you reap what you sow. Nichols has a fat salary and will get an even fatter pension after she leaves which won't be any time soon with Moonbeam as governor.
As usual, the problem in California is Californians.

Instead, thank California.
Wouldn't that be like thanking a hooker for giving you a venereal disease...?

(dem + rino progressives -- destroying america for 150 years.)
I've actually talked with people working at CARB during the early 1990's and they told me until the wide adoption of engine control computers and fuel injection around 1989, it was actually REALLY
hard to get a gasoline engine to meet CARB emission control standards.
But once engine control computers and fuel injection became universally used, it allowed for very precise fuel metering and ignition timing, which made it possible to dramatically lower emissions without hurting performance and fuel economy. Indeed, the current CARB Ultra-Low Emissions Vehicle Level 2 (ULEV-II) standard has its EPA equivalent: Tier 2 Bin 5, which most auto manufacturers strive to meet for a non-hybrid engine. The arrival of variable valve timing in the middle 1990's on a larger scale (e.g., Honda's pioneering VTEC system) allowed for even more precise control of ignition timing, and soon conventional gasoline engines could even meet the same emissions standard as those for hybrid vehicles.
Yes, I know a lot of people on FR are skeptical, but with engines now starting to get direct fuel injection and soon a really radical design called homogeneous combustion compression-ignition (HCCI), a small car could get over 50 mpg on the EPA 2008 test, possibly as early as 2015.

Thank? More like blame, as every dollar that goes into researching how to squeeze more MPG out of a car means another dollar lost to research to replace gasoline powered cars.

Hey Obama, you want to save fuel and reduce air pollution, how about keeping that wildebeest of a wife of yours on the ground for a change and off OUR airplanes using OUR money so she can act like the Jeffersons and moving on up to the East Side with a DELUXE apartment in the sky.

Of course it was running about 35 mph on the European expressways.
