With today’s economy, Hybrid vehicles are gaining their niche in the automotive market. Some people buy them because they are better for the environment, and some people buy them for their fuel efficiency. With gas prices going up the way they are I can’t blame either party for choosing a hybrid vehicle. In most peoples cases, hybrid cars are great, they use regular gas so they are convenient for the user but they get significantly better gas mileage than their non-hybrid counterparts. This advantage may take a while to pay itself off with the increased prices of these vehicles. Some people say they aren’t justified because they could use the cash they saved buying a conventional car on gas, making the total investment on their vehicle less than on a hybrid one. Some people chose to go buy a diesel powered vehicle because they get significantly higher mileage than a gasoline powered vehicle while also being better on the environment. There are die hard people that will buy a diesel vehicle and run it on biodiesel or Straight Vegetable Oil [SVO] these are called “frybrids” and use waste vegetable oil from restaurants to fuel their vehicles. These are the ultimate hybrids as they create fuel from other peoples waste. You can also modify your diesel engine to run on used motor oil. No matter what you choose, a hybrid is a great choice for both fuel efficiency and being environmentally clean. The more extreme you get, the better your benefits are. It all depends on how far you are willing to go.
