					Gas Diesel Hybrid War

These days, gasoline prices may be crimping your your household budget.
You may like to reduce the U.S. dollars that flow to the Middle East for
oil, or perhaps you are motivated by your concern for the environment, or
even the nagging reality that oil is a depleting resource that shouldn't
be wasted.

Fuel economy

To put it into prospective, the fuel economy are the numbers posted on
the window sticker of a new vehicle. Studies have shown that the average
driver only receives 75 percent or so of the mileage figures that are on
the sticker.

You can use these numbers to determine the best type of vehicle for your
purchase. The numbers will let you know how many MPG your vehicle will
get, so you can compare vehicles and then go from there.

Hybrid pricing

The gas electric hybrid vehicles are normally priced higher than non
hybrid counterparts, anywhere from a couple of thousand dollars to
several thousand dollars.

Hybrids can get a lot of miles per gallon, some averaging around 45 - 55.
This is great for those who want to save money on gas, as hybrids can go
many miles on a full tank of fuel and they come with extended warranties
as well.

Diesel efficiency

Diesel powered vehicles are yet another fuel efficient option. Diesels
are known for getting extra mileage from every gallon of fuel. They
offer much better torque than many gasoline engines. The price
differential they have over gasoline engines are usually much smaller
than that of the hybrid.

With plenty of options available, you're sure to find what you need to
help conserve fuel. Before you make a purchase, always remember to shop
around and find what's best for you. If you resist the temptation to go
with the same old thing you always had, you may discover something new
and better.
