This article is click-bait, but I like this discussion.
It's not the fuel, it's the driver. Most efficiency from driverless cars will be realized when they do not share the road with humans, so in 10-20 years, there will likely be bans for human drivers in major metropolitan areas. You won't think about what engine is in your car, because you won't have one—you'll just push a button and one will show up.
At this point I'll park my cars outside the ban radius, and get rid of the any that aren't a blast to drive.
Driverless cars will be as big a boon for modern society as the internet. They can't come soon enough.
