Jay Leno’s Garage: The US Army FED Hybrid Humvee (VIDEO)

Army General Dennis L. Via and Chief Engineer Dr. Grace Bochenek give Jay a tour of the Army’s latest vehicle, designed to minimize fuel consumption and maximize the safety of our troops.

“The focus has always been on survivability and the capabilities of the vehicle, but not fuel efficiency,” Bruce J. Huffman, a Tardec spokesman stated. “However, since about 70 to 80 percent of the convoys in Afghanistan are hauling fuel, reducing our consumption and the number of fuel convoys will take thousands of soldiers out of harm’s way. ‘Less fuel, more fight’ is the new mantra.”
