It plays bloody hell with your numbers when you start looking at vehicles and think that the British have super efficient little vehicles that all get 50 miles gallon. Until you realise that one imnperial gallon is 1.2 US gallon, so it's a less impressive 40 US mpg, not 50 mpg like you think.

And I'll give my consent to any government that does not deny a man a living wage-Billy Bragg
