Since when are diesel prices low? Diesel was more expensive the premium gas here in my area.neophase said:wise decision of going towards electric as you'll see the gas prices going 5 fold, 10 fold in this next decade I bet you, with the stance Bush has, and the middle-east, this is only the beginning.
I hear propane fueled vehicles are nice, or even diesel. Why get a car when you can get a work truck? Much better there for hauling stuff around, or a van even if you already have a big family. Hemp fueled vehicles? they have one on market yet?
let's get some URLs in this post people.... diagrams, stress-test, comparisons, etc.
Or you could do what every other Volvo owner in the world does and drive the car into the ground. If you take care of it you should get close to 200,000 miles out of the car. Mine is just about to hit 100,000 and is still going very strong--still a very nice car too. Peppy, gets good gas mileage (I get about 32-35 mpg on the highway), and a great car for winter weather. And you don't have to get it serviced at the dealership.Nastie_Bowie said:Not to mention the depreciation.
Drive it off the dealer's lot and lose 15 grand.
Electric cars for 2-5 grand? you're kidding me? that's WACKO!Raft Boy said:I just bought a hybrid last last year, so I can tell you what I think of it so far. It's a Civic, so take my advice for what it is, zodi.
Also, hybrids are priced a lot more versus the standard model. I know the Accord hybrid is about $3000-4000 more, and the Civic is about $3000. I got mine for only $1500 more because the dealer had to clear out room for the 2005 models. So the savings I mentioned earlier pretty much paid for the difference.
Either way, good luck with the purchase.
no, 2-5000 OVER the base model cost. so the basic civic is about 15000 or so, the hybrid would be closer to 20000neophase said:Electric cars for 2-5 grand? you're kidding me? that's WACKO!
I thought they'd be like 20-40k!!!
US Prices I presume.
So I guess diesel is more, but what about propane gas ran vehicles? or even cleaner, hemp oil, and coconut oils? I think you can get vehicles running on these oils/gasses can't you?
