Hiyo from Wyo

Hi, I only joined just now because I recently found out you can get hybrid numbers in a normal car! I'm excited to see how much farther I can push my driving efficiency without getting a new car.

yea i have not seen a point in spending the extra money on a hybrid when i can have a normal car and pull the same numbers without even trying very hard to get the numbers. I have not even felt like ive tried in my past 2 cars to get better mileage and ive pulled over highway estimates

So, now imagine the mileage you could be squeezing from a hybrid!

Right now, by mpg is rivaling a friends 2007 HCH. If I can get 400 miles out of a full tank though, I'll be happy.
