Dan, you're so right. I did some extensive research on this last year interviewing the top small engine manufacturer in the USA. Here's my column about it:

All Politics is Local. 
South Portland, Maine, could be the first U.S. city to pass a law to block Alberta oilsands crude from getting anywhere near its waterfront. The city of 25,000 people is turning into a test case for local communities that don’t want oilsands bitumen shipped from their ports. Tom Blake, the former mayor of South Portland, gave CBC News a tour of his city this week where a temporary moratorium has been imposed on any new structures used by oil comp...

The VW Passat TDI is conservatively rated at 43 MPG highway.  It'll do 50, no problem. Multiply that by the TDI's 18.5 gallon fuel tank capacity and you'll end up with an astronomical amount of range.

I had the incredibly good fortune to witness the unveiling of +Valvoline's Reinvention Project last month in Charlotte at ZMax Dragstrip and tour the remarkable Hendrick Motorsports facility. I'll post a writeup this weekend, along with a video or two.

Story
Introduction

To paraphrase James Carville, "It's about gas mileage, stupid."

Daniel Gray's innovative MPGomatic car reviews focus on fuel-efficiency, in-cabin technology, and real world performance. By driving with a light-footed approach over hundreds of miles, Daniel has been able to meet or beat the official EPA estimates on nearly every car tested. Blame the obsession with gas mileage on having lived through the 1970s oil crisis while driving a 1966 Tri-Power GTO. Daniel is currently working on a white paper based on his findings and continues to produce video reports on alternative fuels and vehicles.

Over the years, Daniel has written twenty books on technology and Internet topics. He has been translated into more than a dozen languages. His publishers have included McGraw-Hill, and imprints of Wiley, Prentice Hall and Thomson.

Daniel first picked up a video camera in 2008 and hasn’t put it down since. In addition to hundreds of published short form automotive reviews and reports, he is producing an independent documentary film on the launch of Rallycross in the United States. While principal filming complete, the project awaits funding to enter post-production. Daniel’s video segments and footage have appeared on the PBS Nightly Business Report, CNN and ESPN. He has been featured on Fox News (Toledo!), and quoted in the New York Times and Los Angeles Times, as well as on National Public Radio.
