Survey: What Would You Give Up In A Car?

80.ford.fiesta.jpgMatthew asks "why do cars use so much fuel?" and notes that "A 1980s Ford Fiesta could get 50mpg and comfortably seat 5 adults, but a Prius can't do that nearly 30 years later." Matthew suggests that we should get rid of the gadgets and reduce weight, but some of that weight comes from safety requirements and devices and even some pollution control equipment.
