Gerber Gear is on a road trip and they have one pretty awesome van. I’m actually quite impressed with what they have going on. Follow their #HelloTrouble trip online if you’re interested in learning more. - Mike

The Tundra Endeavour - I would love to see a “behind the scenes” on this, from a technical standpoint.

U.S. Army going green with fuel-efficient armored-car

The FED Bravo [Fuel Efficient ground vehicle Demonstrator] is a diesel hybrid that is in testing and looking to be added to the motor pool.

Specs:

  • 4.4L Twin Turbo V8 [268hp]
  • Electric motor [powers front wheels]
  • 8.2 mpg - City
  • 14.2 mpg - Highway
  • 16,760 lbs.
  • 5 mile range on pure EV mode.
  • 24 gallon fuel tank.


I must not have been aware at how bad the mileage of the Humvee is because they say that this thing nearly doubles the range of it. Whoa.

It’s still in development but for more info and pics, check out the full post on CarBuzz.com.

Silencerco made a video that I think you should watch. 

This thing is insane. I’m most impressed at the multi fuel engine which can run on: 

  • Diesel
  • Used motor oil
  • Used automatic transmission fluid
  • Hydraulic fluid
  • Gasoline

Watch on to learn more.
