I understand it for Military personnel, but SAY THAT, not 100% of our fleet will be MORE efficient, say 95%, which is the truth. And further more, these guidelines are stated for ALL manufacturers, so there is no doubt that they would HAVE to buy greener inherently.

Once again, a President saying he's doing something and taking credit for it, yet the statutes of the CAFE standards would implement this already.

The only thing he has done is asked the purchasers in each department not to buy Big Trucks with Big engines that get less gas mileage due to weight and size.

2005 CTSV BLACK LS7 Clutch/Flywheel/Slave, Tick Speed Bleeder, Tilton Clutch MC, RevShift Bushings, Domestic V8 Solutions (shifter, 8.8 Diff conversion, srut tower braces, sub-frame connectors), SLP cats, no cags, xpipe, bullet mufflers, Volante, iPod dock, G-force tune; 379hp 381tq.

Killing 5th gens like it is my job.
