Screw the Hummer. Buy a Tango.

What gets 70 miles to the gallon, cruises along at 50 mph and runs on three wheels? The RTM Tango, a little egg-shaped scooter-car. The company, RTM Group Inc. is based in Miami and builds the three-wheelers in Uruguay. Although the vehicle cannot travel on the interstate, it does sport a windshield, a roof, a dashboard, a trunk and reverse gears. Scooter dealers in Florida received their first shipments of Tangos last month. The car comes in bright, primary colors.

Cost: about $7,000 Cost for a 2.6-gallon fill up: $8. Karma: priceless.
