DearAuto Manufacturer CEO and Board of Directors:

I am writing to ask that your organization begin as soon as possible to make your vehicles more efficient and less
detrimental to the quality of our air.

There are currently available technologies on-the-shelf such as:

   • Continuously Variable Automatic Transmissions (CVT)


   • Variable-Valve-Control-Engines
   • Integrated Starter-Generators (ISG)
   • Hybrid, Fuel-cell, and hydrogen energy technologies 
   • Switching from steel to aluminum, a stronger, lighter metal
... that will make most passenger vehicles, including A reasonable Corporate Average Fuel Efficiency (CAFE
SUVs, more environmentally friendly, and Standard) by 2012 is 50 miles per gallon. Give these targets
economical to operate. Please have your engineers your best effort for the benefit of us all. Work toward zero auto
and design staff begin phasing these technologies emissions by 2020. And fit all vehicles with interior air handling
into your production cycles as soon as possible. systems that exclude external air when desired by the occupants.
The 1st three items on the list above have been shown to more than double fuel efficienty in SUVs,
and save consumers as much as three times as much as they would cost to install in new vehicles.
