Driving down the interstate with your hood peeled back onto your windshield certainly falls into the latter category, and yet, the driver in the video after the jump managed to do just that down a few miles of New Hampshire highway.
The seemingly never-ending argument over ethanol content in fuel is making headlines once again. This time 'round, the debate centers on New Hampshire.
