Tell Toyota to Support Higher Fuel Standards

Toyota advertises itself as the greenest, most fuel-efficient car company in the industry. But now the maker of the best-selling Prius hybrid is opposing tougher U.S. fuel economy standards for cars and light trucks. It's time to tell Toyota to back up its planet-friendly image by supporting a standard of 35 miles per gallon by 2020.

Maybe it's also time to tell them to import those 50+ mpg diesel engines they've been selling in Europe for years too.
