The 65 mpg Ford not sold in the U.S.

The auto maker claims it's because the high price of diesel fuel in the U.S. will doom this new car's sales, so it's only for sale in Europe.

(Like Europe doesn't have sky high fuel prices....)

Yes, European drivers are more acclimated to diesel autos than their U.S. counter-parts & the Europeans don't seem to mind generations of tiny, odd ball clown cars that one could almost fit in a closet, but I still smell a rat with Ford's decision not to sell in the U.S.

The silver lining is I also think that some ingenious entrepreneur will make a bundle finding some way to sell these fuel sippers to a U.S. market which suffers from a bad case of pump price shock.
