They might want to better explain how they arrived at these numbers. Those numbers per gallon would seem bad, till you realize the scooters get 10x the mileage the tribeca does. I hate these studies, they don't explain their methods worth a damn.

Worthless really as it's in parts per million and not total output. To ignore that crucial piece of information is intentional stupidity.

I'm a little confused about how a different vehicle could get a different amount of CO2 out of burning a certain amount of gasoline, other than Magic. Methinks these numbers are -what's the word - crap. It doesn't make sense to put CO2 in terms of a percent of exhaust volume, for one.

reminds me about some of the tests Mythbuster do, where they look at the problem in a microscopic way, rather than macroscopic.

yeah, I agree with one of the comments about total output - micrograms whatever per mile would be better. Or total output per passenger mile since the Tribeca can hold like 6 people.

I briefly googled for the 2005 EPA study metioned but couldn't spot it. It would probably be more clear.

There's a reason why all new scooters are 4 stroke instead of 2 stroke engines.

Bwahahaha, I'm reading the comments on that article and it is a complete ass raping. I wonder if the writer of that article feels as clever as he did when he originally wrote.
