The Nissan e-NV200 may be the new kid on the EV block, but that isn’t stopping a European taxi company from choosing to add it to its fleet.
It’s a whole ‘nother kind of fuel economy: Honda says its MC Fill fueling protocol “significantly” reduces refueling time for hydrogen vehicles. In preparation for the next generation of Honda fuel cell electric vehicles (FCEVs), the automaker is testing the new fueling protocol at its Torrance, CA, R&D headquarters.
So after living with the Jeep Cherokee for a week I can report on the mileage and say 23.2 isn’t too shabby. Credit the MultiAir 2.4 and the 9-speed.

The Automotive Science Group ASG tried to show their love to the new Mitsubishi Mirage, which you can get with some pretty cool infotainment for not much over the base sticker price if you are looking for a basic ride with great dash setup.
Yesterday I had a great talk with Craig Van Batenburg of ACDC Hybrid Training about fuel economy.
I have noticed the fuel economy in my C-Max go from a respectable-to-the-window-sticker 46.6 to 36.8 during the winter months.
