A new military vehicle featured by the Department of Defense website boasts a 70% reduction in fuel costs.

The 'Fuel Efficient Ground Vehicle Demonstrator,' as it's officially known, is 'designed to accomplish all of the missions of the M1114 "up-armored" Armor Survivability Kit (ASK) FRAG 5 Humvee.' I guess the 'Fed is Alpha' with these undeclared wars for empire which never seem to end.
The 'Armed with Science' division of the U.S. Dept. of Defense issued a press release on the vehicles, stating, in part,
The Fuel Efficient Ground Vehicle Demonstrator, also known as the Fed Alpha, is a lightweight aluminum chassis. It's designed to accomplish all of the missions of the M1114 "up-armored" Armor Survivability Kit (ASK) FRAG 5 Humvee .
Except that it's 70% more fuel efficient.
