Thumbs up Oil Prices Up, MPG WAY Up!!

http://www.popularmechanics.com/auto...html?series=19

Up to 300 mpg with 2 versions of the car. The hybrid version which is plug in rechargable and the full electric that has a 120 mile range. The hybrid is about $30,000 and plug in is $27,000.

I think it's a bad-*** car.

Yeah exactly. People think that just because your not putting it directly into the car that you arent using any.

that's true. I wonder if you could put together some kind of solar generator to plug into though.

Ever driven an older Ferrari? The seating position is often refered to as "lay down and drive". I found that leaning the seat back further than I was used to in my old Corvette helped me fit in the car better, too.
