Featured: 40+ cars that barely avoid the gas guzzler tax thumbnail

Filed under: Convertible , Coupe , Sedan , Performance , Wagon , Government/Legal , Audi , Bentley , Cadillac , Chevrolet , Chrysler , Dodge , Ford , Hyundai , Jaguar , Lexus , Maserati , Mercedes-Benz , Porsche , Luxury The Gas Guzzler schedule, with mpg ratings and charges that haven’t changed since 1991, lays out which fuel-swillers owe what to Uncle Sam.

Fisker asset sale may not include name, logo thumbnail

Filed under: Sedan , Government/Legal , Fisker Always read the fine print before you sign the contract. That platitude is taking on new life as word comes that the winning bidder for bankrupt plug-in hybrid manufacturer Fisker may not actually earn the rights to use the company’s name and logo. According to Delaware Online , that’s because Fisker Automotive doesn’t actually own either – they’re the property of a different company called Fisker Coachbuild, LLC, and they were used under license by the carmaker since 2008.
