This is just ludicrous:
With the U.S. Army spending $100 a gallon to buy gasoline and lug it to Iraq and Afghanistan for Humvees, the brass wants to cut its fuel costs. One possible solution: the Army National Automotive Center’s push to boost the market for hybrid engine technology.
Ok, let me be the first to inform the Pentagon that if they can’t seem to find a way to fill the Humvees for less than $100/gal while driving smack dab in the center of the oil-rich Middle East… perhaps the problem isn’t fuel economy and the solution isn’t hybrid engines.
I don’t know, just a theory here.
