You know fuel prices are too high when the U.S. military starts building hybrid Humvees. The FED (Fuel Efficiency Demonstrator) isn’t a replacement for the trusty all-purpose vehicle. Rather the concept is a showcase of the technologies the Army hopes to apply to its existing fleet of vehicles for a new generation of service. The FED is smarter, safer and 30% more fuel efficient than a conventional Army rig, meaning it’s good for 7mpg. Not bad for a 15,000lb vehicle.
