As far as better mileage, it's not just diesels that get better mileage, it's what is done to them. I can modify any pickup or vehicle straight from the factory so that it gets a minimum of 8% to 25% better mileage within a day, and in some cases, depending on how much money I have to work with, I can get 35% to 150% better mileage. A hybrid such as a Prius can get 150 to 250 mpg and I'm thinking that 300+ is very possible. I know that a plug-in hybrid could get that and up to 500 mpg.

Very quickly, the government lies on unemployment figures and has done so for many years now. The media only spreads those lies. They count part-time employees as working full-time, so that makes things look way better than it is. Unemployment is about 12 or 13%. It's improving, but not well enough. Believe me, as I'm on the look out for a job, actively go out every day, most are lower paying here that are available from $7.93 to $8.50 an hour and the vast majority are part-time. For tech positions, it's not that much better except that I can find some starting at $11 to $14 an hour, but I can't get to the better ones as I walk and take the bus.

Good post there on the Dodge getting the best mileage out of all the trucks. Only thing is that's from the factory. In real world I and others can get well over 40 mpg out of them and into the low 50's. I've always improved upon the mileage I was getting out of my vehicles with various modifications and only stopped with any of them because of lack of money. We could already have vehicles straight from the factory getting 70 to 120 mpg and more, even 250 mpg is more than possible and the fleet standards wouldn't be 26 or 28 mpg as it is now and would be well into the 40's. Interesting, you're another one like a lot of us and my friends out here at GB and on the net or in my local life. Computers are a common among us. I like trouble shooting them the best as well as modifying them to make 'em faster but I like working on vehicles to make 'em more fuel efficient as well. Later!
