From what I'm reading, it seems like both sides of the argument are essentially correct, in different ways. It seems you're both describing different sides of the same coin, and different truths in different conditions, but are not combining them to form the greater picture. Not to take sides, but a lot of what GoingNuts is saying seems correct to me, particularly his last statement about energy input during initial acceleration vs consistent cruising. Let me think about this and get back to you.
Glad to see we have some intelligence in this thread.

Question for you:
Are boobs and hands polarly charged, thus causing the inevitable joining of the two? If so are some breasts simply charged backwards?

On a scale from 0 to 24...wait, 3 to 24, where 6 is the lowest and 12 is the highest, how freaking high re you right now?

She's got you high, and you don't even know yet.

Is this guy seriously claiming that the flywheel produces torque?

I'd say a 20lb lighter flywheel would have negligible affect on fuel economy for a 3200lb car cruising in 5th or 6th gear, when the engine is seeing the full weight of the car (5th gear 1:1 ratio) or more than than the weight of the car (6th gear 1 : 0.85). that 20lb difference would be less than 1% of the weight of the car.

Believe it. If not, remove the flywheel and see how much torque your wheels get.

Okay. That's like saying that the brake lines brake the car.

Obviously the car won't brake when you remove them, but what actually makes you stop, numbnuts?

Show pic of the 50lb torque on the wheel or you ain't getting diddly squat.

ok, by this logic... the flywheel creates the torque, correct?

torque = power/energy/whatever.

i could theoretically remove the entire engine from the car, leave the flywheel attached to the input shaft of the transmission, and i could still drive the car.
damn, why didnt i think of that! the fuel consumption is absolutely nothing! the flywheel just spins, and the car goes!
