However, I do wonder about this.

I am curious, how many more miles per gallon could we get out of our cars if we lightened the restrictions on emissions of the auto manufacturers by x%, Now after doing that, how many less gallons of fuel would we use as a nation, and now, how many emissions have been eliminated from the refinery process, and how many less barrels are we using?

Clearly that's some sort of argument going on somewhere in washington, and I don't know enough about it to know if it's a valid argument. Scooter? Bones? others with engine controls/calibration experience care to chime in?
