QuickGuideForYou.com -- Guide to Conserve More Fuel with Hybrid Cars Most hybrid cars are made for fuel efficiency but you can further squeeze extra miles by adapting good driving habits. Go easy on the brakes. Your hybrid car has the regenerative braking system that recaptures the energy lost from braking and stores it back to your batteries. If you brake slowly, you give your electric motor more time to store power thus, recovering more energy back to the batteries. Drive at slow speed. When you drive at a slow speed, you are running the electric motor. This saves a lot of gas. Avoid quick acceleration. Quick acceleration wastes a lot of energy. If you need to accelerate, do it gradually if possible. Check your tire pressure. Use and maintain the maximum recommended tire pressure for your car on the sidewall. Avoid rush hour. Stop-and-go traffic consumes a lot of gas. Use low octane gasoline. Not only it is cheaper, vehicles are actually designed to run well on low octane gas. Glide. If you are comfortable with driving back and forth to neutral, you can get the best out of your speed. Coasting in neutral gives you a longer cruise and better use of energy.

www.emfnews.org www.emfnews.org Hybrid Car Radiation Many hybrid cars, including some models from Volvo and a model from Honda, have been found to exceed the current EMF safety levels. Toyota, who manufactures the hybrid car Prius, has refused to divulge EMF readings for the car to owners who have expressed safety concerns regarding EMF exposure. Hybrid cars are partly powered by a battery, which is usually in the rear of the car. In most hybrid cars, there is a cable that runs underneath the driver's seat. This cable carries high-voltage direct current from the battery pack in the rear of the car to the motor in the front. Truck drivers who sit on top of a mess of wires carrying similar voltage have been found to have high rates of kidney cancer. To date, there have been no studies done on the long-term effects of hybrid car radiation on passengers.

Glenn Beck's Arguing with idiots, another one about Hybrid cars.
Glenn argues with his idiot friend, Pat, about Hybrid cars.
With unstable oil prices and increasing damage to the environment from burning fossil fuels, the effort to convert from gasoline powered vehicles to those powered by alternative fuels continues. Automakers are introducing more gasoline-electric hybrid models which burn far less fuel than their all-gasoline versions. They are also developing plug-in hybrids which will have certain ranges over which they can drive without using a drop of gasoline. Engineers say these cars could achieve as much as 100 miles per gallon. In April 2008, I spoke with a plug-in hybrid advocate who made a presentation to the Columbia City Council.
Agent 001 of AutoSpies.com reviews the 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid. Is it the best hybrid ever to come out of the USA and is it a Prius killer?
What Edmunds.com says The 2009 Nissan Altima Hybrid is an excellent choice for drivers who want a little fun between point A and point B. Too bad it's only sold in the eight states that have adopted California's emissions standards. Pros Excellent fuel economy, sporty handling, precise steering, top-notch interior materials, high crash test scores. Cons Can only be obtained in eight states, options are only offered in expensive packages, so-so backseat comfort. What's New for 2009 The 2009 Nissan Altima Hybrid remains unchanged from the previous year, except for standard automatic door locks and four more exterior color choices. 2009 Nissan Altima Hybrid Vehicle Overview Introduction Hybrids and other green cars, though known for being economical and earth-friendly, have a reputation for also being rather slow, odd-looking and uninspiring behind the wheel. Bucking the trend is the 2009 Nissan Altima Hybrid. Although it has the outward appearance and driving manners of a conventional sedan, the Altima Hybrid sips fuel while keeping harmful emissions to a minimum. Borrowing heavily from rival Toyota's parts bin via a licensing agreement, the Nissan Altima Hybrid shares a fair amount of technology and components with the Toyota Camry Hybrid. It has a Nissan engine -- a revised version of the 2.5-liter four-cylinder in the regular Altima and a specialized continuously variable transmission (CVT). These improvements result in a more refined powertrain with better acceleration ...
FULL TOYOTA PRIUS VS. HONDA INSIGHT @ INSIDELINE.COM: www.edmunds.com At the launch of the 2010 Toyota Prius, Bob Carter, group vice president and general manager for Toyota Motor Sales USA, tells us, "We'll face two challenges when the Prius goes on sale: the economy and the 2010 Honda Insight. "The good news for consumers is that the market has plenty of room for both the Prius and Insight in their respective segments," Carter adds. "Based on our 2010 projections, the Prius can achieve a theoretical 7 percent share of the industry's largest segment — midsize sedans. In the second-ranked compact class, the Insight could achieve a 5 percent market share." So it'll be a nice, peaceful coexistence for these two hybrid cars that just happen to look almost exactly like each other. Don't believe that? Neither do we. As the US economy continues its topsy-turvy performance, nobody's market share is safe. So it actually matters which hybrid car is better — the 2010 Honda Insight, which went on sale March 24, or the 2010 Toyota Prius, which hits dealers in late May. The Insight has already proven itself against the 2009 Prius. But now that the 2010 Toyota Prius has appeared with its bigger engine, all-new chassis and 50-mpg EPA-combined fuel economy rating, it is a much tougher hybrid cookie (bursting with high-fiber organic oats and fair-trade chocolate chips!).

FOR PRICING & SPECS ON THIS CAR VISIT: www.kbb.com Toyota Camry Hybrid. The Toyota Camry Hybrid offers the same roomy interior and sterling reputation as the rest of the Camry line, but in a greener, more eco-friendly package. With fuel economy figures in the mid 30s, the Camry Hybrid is certainly easy on the gas, and can actually operate solely on electric power in stop and go traffic and low-speed around-town jaunts. Bigger than Toyotas other hybrid car, the Prius, the Camry Hybrid not only offers a wider passenger cabin, but also more power and the security of a trunk. With 10 years experience building hybrid cars, one might assume Toyota would have a lock on the market. But stiff competition is always present, and the Camry Hybrid must now do battle with some equally impressive nameplates such as the Ford Fusion Hybrid and Chevrolet Malibu Hybrid.

If you've ever sen the car in the video it's called the Bricklin SV-1 and was made between 1974 and 1976. It's maker is Malcolm Bricklin, an American Entrepreneur. Bricklin brought Suburu to America from Japan, as well as Fiat X1-9, and the Yugo. In the 90s he turned his attention to making environmentally friendly vehicles, making an electric bike called The EV Warrior. Today, Bricklin is combining his experience with fuel cell technology and his knoweldge of manufacturing techniques and economics to create a line of plug - in hybrid vehicles or PHEVs, which he says can be installed in your car right now, making it more gas efficient. I sat down with Bricklin at the San Francisco screening of "The Entrepreneur" , a movie about him. In our talk, he revealed that he got a call that morning to be the President-Elect's "Car Czar", a job he turned down. He explained why.
The first hybrid car was introduced in 1905. It had two distinct power sources working together to make it run; gas and electric power. However, using only gasoline back then was cheap and easy to power, and the hybrid car was forgotten; until recently. Since the fuel widely used now is a non-renewable resource and becoming increasingly less affordable, the hybrid car is making a comeback. Hybrid cars are operated by a computer system called the Digital Drive Line. When you step on the gas pedal, you are telling the system how fast you need to go and the car decides whether to use gas, electric power or both. The benefit of the hybrid is that instead of running on gas for an entire trip, it uses non-polluting electric power when possible. The hybrid car is ideal for city driving and traffic. By using less gas, hybrid cars help cut pollution and helps save drivers money at the gas pump.
