drive a 4cyl and you will half your fuel bill - but no, you need a large V8 as you are a man, and men must drive a V8!!

that 10K MPG car? lets say you scaled it up to fit 4 people exactly like that. so it 4x bigger which means wind has 4x the effect the weight is 4x and the engine size must be 4x larger too. you could probably calculate the resulting MPG using complex mathematics, but I'm too lazy to do so. but I would estimate that, the end result would make the cars efficiency go down to 500MPG and thats without any safety and luxury features. not to mention that car is made out of expensive materials...
I would say that considering every little detail, our cars are pretty damn efficient.
