As long as you haven't bought a jug of water because water is VERY VERY HEAVY! Those things bottom out if you put 2 jugs in em.

The problem with this is that they assume you are going to buy a brand new vehicle, what about trading for a used car that gets good mileage.

Agreed! There's lots of $500 cars out there that will get 30MPG. The problem with those $500 cars is that you need to replace them every 1-2 years. Then you can take that $500 car to the shreader and get $200 for it so your next $500 car only costs $300. I like my economics better than Yahoo!.

I bought a brand new Escort in '93 to offset my hotrod Camaro's gas.


I still have that little bugger stuffed in the garage, with all the 110k miles on her. I think I'll dust her off for the grocery runs.

Your going from a used vehicle to a new vehicle. What they need to compare is a new Expedition vs a new Escape Hybrid.

If I had to choose between F250 and Escape Hybrid I'd go with the F250. Mainly because I don't need an Escape Hybrid.

We have trucks. There's nothing to swap it out with that can do the job.
