It goes without saying: times are tough for Americans right now.  We’re all boot strapped and even though the price per barrel of oil is going down gasoline isn’t.  The VKM 50, ELV’s latest hybrid scooter manages a surreal 180MPG thanks to it’s 49cc gas powered electric engine.  Top speed maxes out at 40MPH, but with this kind of mileage who cares.  ELV plans to roll out a 149cc version, which will probably push the VKM 50 to highway speed capable.  Best of all, it’ll only cost $2,895!

Grew up back East, got sick of the cold and headed West. Since I was small I have been pushing buttons - both electronic and human. With an insatiable need for tech I thought "why not start a blog focusing on technology, and use my dislikes and likes to post on gadgets."
