the safety factor is far more important in the SUV argument than the fuel savings .the big heavy vehicles are a lot safer than them sardine cans on wheels .i dont own a SUV but do have an older full size pickup ....back during the fuel saving craze during the seventys i needed a car . i went looking for a big gas guzzler that i knew would be cheap . i found a 72 buick le saber 6 year old one ower garage keep perfect shape 60 k miles for $1200. i snaped that raskal up from the dealer and laughed for about 6 years at the value i got vesas the extra gas i used . the saving on the vehicle off set he extra gas cost and i rode in comfort . one winter my daugter hit a icy spot in the road did a 225 degree turn and hit a 3 foot diameter tree right between the head lights and didn't even get a scratch (no seat belts in use) . the tree died and i paid for it so i wouldnt have to report it for insurance . the car was drive home with a big V in the bumper
