I hate to say it — because electric cars may be the salvation of transportation someday — but much of the current hype around electric cars is smoke and mirrors.

Perhaps if we had just listened to the deer all along, we never would've ended up in this gas guzzling mess.

Considering deer, it’s time for a roll bar.

In the pursuit of 100 mpg, cardboard is a nice medium for conceptualizing design features, but it has its limitations.

One would think a car wouldn't need a mechanical inspection at 5,000 miles. But when you're building a 100-mpg car from scratch, and the builder is meticulous, it's wise to look for problems even when there are no signs of problems.

MAX needs 25 percent more horsepower to get from zero to 60 mph in less than 18 seconds. Got any suggestions?
3/11/2009 2:42:09 PM
MAX is well on its way to 100 mpg, if the lessons from these 100+ mpg motorcyles are any indication.

It's the age-old tug of war between good looks and streamlined, aerodynamic design.
10/24/2008 2:51:36 PM
What kind of mpg did MAX get in the race? How did Jack get fuel along the way? How much can you get for a t-shirt and a copy of Mother Earth News? Answers to these exciting questions inside!

MAX is hitting 60 mpg. That's better than a Prius, and before we get serious about streamlining.
10/2/2008 3:10:10 PM
What does MAX have in common with and old action, adventure, paranoia, social commentary BBC TV series of the '60s?

Is the glass half empty? Half full? Or is there just too much glass? I'm designing MAX to be just the right amount of "glass" for the vast majority of our driving. Here's to efficiency.
7/11/2008 7:42:12 AM
We're at work on a 100-mpg DIY car! Come meet MAX and take a seat for what will be a long, but fun, journey.
