Re: DRL Followup

No moral--I simply felt compelled to estimate how much gasoline DRLs would
use. I thought the 10% value given for drop in mileage with DRLs was too
high. I also didn't want our DRL discussions to be using an inaccurate value
for the drop in mileage.

I guess my estimate could be used both ways. Those in favor of DRLs could
say the drop is negligible. Those opposed to DRLs could say that even small
drops, across millions of automobiles, adds up to a lot of gasoline and $.
And certainly there are other costs to DRLs besides the additional gasoline
