Sit down, this may be shocking news.
Detroit has been lying about what they can do to increase gas mileage.
Yep, they have. Even to their own engineers, apparently.
An amateur mechanic named Jonathan Goodwin has proven that it's possible to get far higher MPG along with far higher HP in just about any vehicle. He can turn a Hummer into a hybrid that gets better gas mileage and better horsepower.
And yet, any notion of Detroit or government interference with this type of technology is considered to be nothing more than conspiracy theory. I bet this gets ignored just like past proofs of these happenings.
I wonder how much he'd charge to convert a Jeep to a hybrid?
