Talking Hybrid fact!

Friend posted this on his Facebook page.

Did you know?
A Honda Civic hybrid starts at $24,200 and gets 44 miles per gallon. A Civic with a normal gas engine starts at $16,000 and gets 39 MPG. If you drive 15,000 miles a year and gas averages $4 a gallon, it will take 47 years for the hybrid to justify its cost over the traditional model.

I still like Top Gear's comparison of a BMW M3 versus a Prius. The M3 had better fuel economy and did less damage to the environment. If only these hybrid owners would open their eyes and realize what's actually in their hybrid cars' batteries, heavy metals and alkalies. Same goes for those people driving those electric cars. Guess they haven't quite figured out that the majority of the electricity on our grids comes fro coal fired power plants.

That was cool to see! Everyone should just buy diesels and the problem would be solved!

North America just needs to follow what the European market has been doing for years. Instead of trying to clean our fuels by adding several additives and making new lower emission blends with less harmful emissions, we need to focus on burning less fuel overall. I mean going into regen for example is just a waste of diesel. You're burning raw diesel to try and clean/lessen your emissions. Don't know who thought that was a good idea... Using less fuel is the way to go.

I know I'm bringing this thread back form the grave, but I just wanted to give my input on this, as I work at a large Honda dealership.

On top of it taking 47 years to break even, the hybrids have many more problems than the conventional gasoline engines! So tack on a few more years to cover those costs as well. And those MPG claims they give are a bunch of horsesh*t

My 8k$ 01 excursion gets10mpg overall, 10,000 miles a year for the past 3 years, cost per mile including all maintainence,and depreciation, insurance and tags, 73 cents per mile. No repairs needed in 30k miles, try that in a new suv of any brand!
