GOOD NEWS: NO U.S. CAR MAKES BETTER WORLD CLUB'S GAS GUZZLER SURCHARGE LIST

WHILE NO AMERICAN CAR IS ONE OF 3 WORST GAS GUZZLERS, WE'LL HONOR AN AMERICAN CAR ANYWAY

CONGRATS TO THE HUMMER H2!

No Need to Thank Us. We Love Our Country. It's Just the Kind of People We Are.

Better World Club is one of the few, if only, companies in the U.S. which takes environmental impact into account when setting our prices--even if it has no impact on our costs. Better World Club surcharges consumers who own one of the 3 worst gas guzzlers 20% on their membership fees. (At the same time, we discount our membership fees for alternative fuel vehicles.)

This year the three worst gas guzzlers are:

- The Lamborghini Marcielago, on the list every year since the gas guzzler surcharge was first instituted in 2005.

- The Bentley Azure made the list for the second year in a row.

- The Bentley Arnage RL, which had appeared on our 2006 list, dropped off in '07, but is back again.

But this left no U.S. car on the list. So, we are also recognizing the Hummer H2 as an honorary gas guzzler. GM doesn't have to disclose the Hummer H2's fuel economy because of its governmental vehicle classification, so there are no official stats on its fuel efficiency. However, most unofficial tests have put the Hummer at 11 mpg.

The 2008 gas guzzlers' average fuel efficiency has actually gone down this year to 10.75 mpg from 11 mpg in 2007 and 2006.
