The last time we checked in on Craig Vetter, he was hard at work designing a new inexpensive design for a vehicle capable of 100 miles per gallon at 70 miles per hour with a 20 mph headwind. Oh yeah, the 2-wheeler also needs to be able to carry four bags of groceries. No problem, right?

The first machine that Vetter ended up with may not be the most attractive motorcycle we've ever seen, but it's still very much a work in progress. In fact, Vetter is rethinking the entire project and plans to retire the Honda Helix and restart with a new base vehicle.

Vetter is now looking for suggestions on how to proceed, and he's posted a bunch of comments and suggestions on his personal page for the project. There are lots of ideas floating around along with questions on what would be the best choice for a powerplant. It seems diesel and electricity are options, but ethanol has been ruled out. Have something to share? Do it.
