Humvee as a status symbol

Holly was telling me that Humvees get 3 MPG. That sounded like propoganda so I checked it out…

Oh my. She’s not so far off! Gasoline powered Hummers get 4-7 MPG! Turbo diesels get 10-15.

That means my 45 mile commute to Cupertino a few days a week would cost $50 round-trip in gas instead of my current $10 round-trip! Something like an extra $6,000 a year in gas. (12,000 miles @ $3/gallon, Hummer 5MPG, Sebring 27MPG)

That’s why it’s a status symbol.
