April 6, 2014 — (TRN) — Americans are guilt-tripped over driving “gas-guzzler” vehicles, but it turns out that our own government is preventing ultra-high-mileage vehicles from being sold here; even though some are BUILT here! With mileages of 50 MPG, 75 MPG, 180 MPG and even 300 MPG, the government says these vehicles “don’t meet American standards” but they’re fine for Europe — which has standards even higher than the US. The real reason these vehicles cannot be sold in the USA is money: if Americans were allowed to buy these high-mileage vehicles, the government wouldn’t get as much money from fuel taxes as they get now and their oil company campaign donors would lose billions in profits. So who makes these super-high-mileage cars? BMW, Toyota, Nissan, Volkswagen. Now read more to find out what the rest of the world can have, but we Americans cannot. . .
The following report is intended to be a wake up call for the American people. There are no tricks here, such as quoting imperial gallons, referencing tiny cars, electric cars, or even hybrids. These cars are straight up 50 plus mile per gallon winners which are banned for sale in the U.S. If you think you can bring one home, think again. In America such cars are allowed a 30 day visit upon crossing the border, after which if they are found on American soil they get impounded and if not immediately shipped out of the country thereafter they are destroyed.
