Can somebody tell me which is more fuel efficient View All
I am curious about the impact of rising fuel prices on the number of trucks on the road. If you have a source for your answer, I would like to see it. Thanks.

I'm not suer I udnersants your question. You ask "which is more fuel efficient" but ther are no choices to choose? Cars are generally more fuel efficient than truck, but there are some smaller trucks out there that are 4 cylinder engines and are quite fuel efficient. It seems silly to me that with fuel prices rising that trucks are still being built with larger and larger engines. One would think that automotive companies would be moving away from that, but apparently not.
