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.
