In typical government fashion, they want to add another system to the car for the per mile tax, when this isn't necessary. Just have the mileage recorded when you go to have your car registered, or smog checked, etc... What happens if the GPS system is 'disabled' wit a bit of foil on the antenna, or broken? Does your car stop running? Still a stupid idea, though.
"I absolutely love my Chevy Volt."

That's what the smug guy in the TV commercial says when he's praising the virtues of his plug-in hybrid and boasting that he hasn't seen a gas pump in months.

You might love your Chevy Volt, too -- if you could afford to buy one.

The GM Volt, aka the Green Edsel, is not just an overly engineered, overly expensive, overweight and impractical car than runs on electricity and gasoline.

It's a Solyndra on Wheels. The Volt only exists because it's been so heavily discounted by GM...
