The V8 running on 4 Cyl on pootling makes great sense to me. I do a city commute daily and use the car for fun on weekends and at other times. I need only the 4 Cyl for city commute.
It is not a question of whether i can afford to pay for the "wasted" power or not, but it is more a matter of using resources responsibly and reducing emissions IMO.
As long as that V8 does the job when it is being kicked in the belly, i dont care what other tricks are used to reduce emissions and increase mileage on day to day driving.
Also, the American attitude towards emissions and petrol consumption needs to change. Petrol is not going to be around forever and climate change is a reality.
Just my 2p.
