Sorry, I'm just so not behind all this Green goop garbage! It's gone way to fanatical for me yeah the light bulbs may last a little longer but break one and come into contact with the mercury inside and you will start glowing green in the manner of a nuclear generator gone awry...Basically it has more than enough in it to kill you. Then you take these green cars and by the time you pay the price tag for it you'll end up in shelter for the homeless due to the outlandish cost of NOTHING that's worth a hill of beans in the end. Sorry, I'll keep my run your butt over, big, fully loaded SUV....Thanks!
