YKYAEMI you refuse a test run in your boss's new Supercharged Range Rover because you might hurt his current tank's MPG.

The hybrid gubbins are around 170lbs, but they save you around 30lbs by removing the alternator and allowing a smaller 12V battery.

The system pulls its weight through the increased charging system efficiency alone. Plus the IMA motor keeps RPMs down while accelerating and makes engine restarts trivial.

Although I avoid using the regenerative brakes while doing hardcore hypermiling, you can't always hypermile in traffic. Regen makes this a very forgiving car to drive efficiently.

Now that I've owned IMA, there's no way I'd ever go back to straight ICE.

UKURaEM when you know you can't register a kilo tank (>1000mi) in EM's garage with a digit after the point (the field is limited to 5 characters).

Denis.

Oooops, I did so...
May be with the Web Developer tool bar for firefox

YKYAEM

When you feel bad about needing to floor the accelerator after getting lost and looking for a street. I needed to do so because there was a car coming down a hill right behind me.

When you can't wait to get your license (June 22nd) so that you won't need to have your inefficient parents in the car with you. (They don't understand the concept of opening the windows instead of using the A/C and keep telling you to speed up/accelerate faster)

That running WVO/Biodiesel would be the cleanest ICE car on the planet.
