Geez, $4.00 plus a gallon for gas today! Uncle! I'm ready for a hybrid. And I don't have an addiction to oil, ok? I hate that phrase.
I didnt flinch at $3.00 a gallon, but $4.00? Hmmm. Now you're pissing me off.
I think of my vehicle as more than basic transportation. I like vehicles that evoke emotion, so call me a cave man. Yes, it's our common curse (why didn't I get the stamp collecting gene?)
But alas, nothing in the fuel effecient realm built today really moves me (so to speak).
Except...Toyota. Yes, Toyota.
They are on the right track, at least for me.
I am referring to the Toyota ABAT concept
It doesn't look like a little 'happy car'.
It has cool styling, it has truck looks, and it is fuel effecient.
If this thing was on the lot today and it got 40 MPG I'd buy it.
I wish Ford or Chevy would enter this area asap.
Come on, throw a Volt truck out there!
Are you crying uncle yet? Are you considering trading a perfectly good auto for a more fuel effecient auto?
