Petrol? Double the Price and Halve Consumption!


- The blue one is normal
- The yellow one has been modified by ESORO engineers (commissioned by Greenpeace)

- 4 seats, 4 airbags, 5 gears
- performance: better than the original
- weight: 650 Kilograms (instead of 825 Kilograms)
- Engine: 358 cc with compressor (weighs 30 Kg instead of 80 Kg)
- Improvement of CX
- Tyres: low resistance
- Petrol consumption: 3 litres per 100 Kilometres instead of 6 litres.

These modifications could be applied to all cars, not just the TWINGO.
This is the car that I took along to the main entrance of FIAT to propose that they make these modifications to their regular production series.

Result: nothing

The SmILE (Small, Intelligent, Light, Efficient). is produced by a Swiss company called ESORO ( which has avant-garde production of high tech innovative prototypes. This machine has satisfied the tests of the German TÜV, the most prestigious and strict certification body in Europe.

The project covering research and construction of the SmILE was financed by Greenpeace with 2,000,000 German Marks (about 2,000,000 Euro)

La trufa di Ryanair: CharleroiBrussels South 23 /24 decembere

Ryanair left many of you and your families (8000!) unattended at the Brussels South Airport on december 23 en 24. Planes for Orio Serio left the neighbouring airport of Liège : empty! Ryanair didn't take any provisions for the next day. Liège Airport officials testify that passengers could have left easily from Liège ( 4O kilometers further) but that Ryanair didn't take the intiative. If you and I complain we get nothing although recent EU-regulations -hated by Ryanair- forsee in a 250 refund extra above the refund of the ticket (21 one days refund although it should happen within 7 days!). Therefore lets form a temporary Trufa-Ryanair-Community. 8000 times 250 Euros is something that will wake up the spirits in Dublin. For the good understanding I was not a passenger, I was to bad a journalist not to invstigate.
