    "The problem with CAFE"

    The major problem with CAFE is that it fails to affect the fuel economy of the vehicles already in service. It therefore works against the goal of improved fuel economy for the entire fleet.

    "please reconsider"

    Dear Team O: Historically the US has offered inadequate high-mileage vehicles. In order to achieve these new CAFE goals, Americans must buy, in large numbers, these new high mileage cars. What happens when Detroit continues to sell ugly/inefficient/tiny high-mileage vehicles no one wants? You risk 1) your credibility, 2) your relationships with carmakers and 3) your relationships with greens (and their congressional representatives) by pursuing this strategy. If you are going to blow up health care, balanced budgets and our existing energy policy, maybe you could consider dumping something small and really illogical--CAFE.
