some consumer groups(real ones) actually are trying to get people realize that hybrid cars cost you more in the long run.
1. you pay more for the hybrid version on most cars and you will have to keep the car for 15 yrs or more with the gas savings to amount to what you will spend buying one compared to the non-hybrid version of the same car.
2. diesel engine cars on the other hand are more fuel effecient and are better priceing for the long run(don't want one though) and the fuel can be changed over to vegetable oil used products at your local mcdonalds( if you have the time and are smart enough ,with about 2-3000 dollars to spend converting it over and makeing the stuff).
I'll stick to my gas hog and not drive it so much. nothing like 425 hp and 3" pipes making you drool.
