Hybrids

I went to San Francisco over the 4th of July weekend.  My brother is letting me use his Honda 2 seater Hybrid.  It is fun to drive however there is not much power or speed to it.

When I step on the gas and shift, it takes quite some time before it gets up to speed.  Climbing hills is a chore for this little car.  I have to move aside and let faster cars pass me.

This is an older model and I am sure the car company has improved on it, it’s just this car (aka Sputter) is not the car you want to drive if you are in a hurry.  This car is for saving gasoline!  It gets 55 miles to the gallon – that is a huge plus where I live because 3 days a week I drive 70 miles round trip each day.  That is a lot of miles and the car I have I would put gasoline in it on my way home every one of those 3 days.  Now I don’t have to stop at gasoline stations as often.  In fact when I was driving it from San Francisco to Cambria, I started with 1/2 a tank and stopped once to put $20.00 in it and made it home with just under 1/2 a tank.

What a pleasure for my pocketbook and for the environment!

  1. I also drove a hybrid this weekend! It was pretty nice and displayed the MPG we were getting. It frequently hit 100! Other times, 25 (when accelerating uphill for example).

      Thank you for reading my post about Hybrids.
      If more people drove Hybrids there would be cleaner air and maybe just maybe the price of gasoline would go down.
