  • I think its a bad idea given the economy. When you ask companies to change anything when it comes to cars then the cost is visited on the consumer. Consumer spending is already down.

  • I can't speak for Friday but I know that Henry Ford ran a car on hemp way back in the 1940s. It can be done but they are choosing not to.
