MSN Auto News has published an article titled Green Cars Automakers Won't Sell You which reveals that automakers have achieved a six-cylinder engine that burns cleaner than current U.S. hybrid cars. And these vehicles, called Partial Zero Emissions Vehicles, or PZEV for short, are only available in California and six northeastern states that meet California's tougher pollution standards. Another example of the failure of our federal government to stand up to the auto and oil industries by enacting national emissions standards. Hat tip to Jason La Fleur for pointing this out.
"PZEVs such as this Ford Focus are so clean that hydrocarbon emissions from grilling a single burger are equivalent to a three-hour drive in this car."
