The 65 MPG Ford Americans Can't BuyFord's Fiesta ECOnetic gets 65 mpg, but Ford won't let American's buy it.
High fuel mileage for autos hasn’t been a technical issue for decades. Cars can easily get 70-80 mpg with basic technology. They can get well over 100 mpg if designed to do so.
Now, Ford is finally willing to actually sell a fuel efficient vehicle instead of just talking about it. Of course the car won’t be for sale in the US.
The Ford Fiest ECOnetic gets up to 65 MPG and will only be sold in Europe. The only reason Ford is willing to buck the oil companies and other sinister forces and sell a fuel efficient car is that it can’t compete in the European market unless it offers some measure of fuel efficiency. Even at 65 mpg the ECOnetic doesn’t compare to the diesel SMART car which gets 75 mpg – available in Canada but of course not the US.
The Fiesta ECOnetic is actually designed to use more fuel than it needs and could get better mileage by simply adjusting the car’s computer.
Back in the late 80’s Ford made a 4 door diesel powered Escort that got 70 mpg. However, only a very few were made, their existence was kept secret from dealers and one had to pay through the nose in advance for one and then wait 6 months to a year for it to be delivered.
The diesel Escort was bigger, heavier, much less aerodynamic, had more power and used LESS fuel than the ECOnetic.
The simple fact is that modern autos are designed specifically to waste fuel. Most people who build fuel efficient vehicles are quickly disappeared, threatened, imprisoned or just put out of business. In some cases they are abducted and subjected to mind control.
The one exception is the officially designated high mileage celebrity Johnathan Goodwin and his company H-Line Conversions. They are allowed to convert a few cars a year to get higher mileage and specialize in the $35,000 “conversion” of Hummers from gasoline and 8-12 mpg to diesel at 25 miles per gallon, which is not really a big deal. Dodge RAM diesel pickups from the 90s got up to 30 mpg with no modifications.
A few years ago a man in California was putting small turbo diesels in Geos and was getting 150 mpg but he has vanished without a trace.
The author was able to easily get 70 mpg from a gas powered Ford Explorer using a simple vapor system made from parts from a hardware store.
Ford’s willingness to do the bidding of dark forces is costing it dearly and may ultimately put it out of business (we can only hope).
