Miles Per Gallon Improvement Over a Century
Over the last 100 years, we’ve gone from having very basic airplanes to landing on the moon. We’ve gone from using an abacus to handheld computers. We’ve gone from telegraph wires to cell phones. And yet, the Model T, waaay back in 1908, got more miles per gallon than MANY of today’s, modern, top-o-the-line cars. How is this possible? How have so many technologies improved so amazingly much, yet our fuel efficiency has barely changed?

By the way, 27.5 mpg isn’t the average mpg for cars — this is what the automakers have to get to by 2012!  We’re not even that far yet!
