How Much Gas Does Your Car Eat Up?

Ok, let me start by saying that I just recently purchased a brand new car! What's the big deal you ask? Well the car does 30 mpg in the city and 40 mpg on the highway. Filled up my gas tank 10 days ago (moderate driving) and I still have a quarter tank of gas left. Went to the gas station several hours ago and it cost me 25 dollars to fill her up! In New York! With oil prices and the price of a barrel of oil at just under 60 dollars, that's pretty good in my opinion.

What type of car is it? No it's not a hybrid, its a Honda Civic 2006. Ok close enough. Your probably wondering what the heck I'm talking about, but in my opinion I'm talking about something very important which will effect my life, your life and our grandkids lives in the future. Stop complaining about high oil prices and do something about it! That means not buying a Hummer or an SUV, but buying a fuel efficient car. Empower yourself and stick it to the big oil executives and there counterparts in the middle east.

According to Edmunds.com, these are the most fuel efficient cars on the road:

Honda Insight — 61/66
Toyota Prius — 60/51*
Honda Civic Hybrid — 45/51
Volkswagen Golf TDI — 38/46
Volkswagen Jetta TDI — 38/46
Volkswagen New Beetle TDI — 38/46
Honda Civic HX — 36/44
Toyota Echo — 35/42
Toyota Corolla — 32/41
Scion xA — 32/37
Honda Accord Hybrid — 30/37*
Pontiac Vibe — 30/36
Toyota Matrix — 30/36
Scion xB — 31/35*
Dodge Neon — 29/36
Toyota Celica GT — 29/36*

Don't forget you also get a tax break in 2006 for buying a hybrid car!

Maybe you should buy one? You make the choice, make a smart one. Future generations will thank you!
