    No offense man, but I'm getting 42-47mpg in my 98 all-gas Corolla that cost me $9 grand. No way in hell I'm paying $23k+ for a Prius that gets about the same or less under normal driving.

    The simple fact of the matter is this; To save fuel, all you need to do is think ahead. Way, way ahead.

    - If you see the lights ahead are red, take your foot off the throttle immediately. If you wait and then use your brakes you are simply wasting the fuel you used to achieve a speed you didn't need. Remember, a modern engine uses no fuel at all when it's coasting in gear.

    - If your car has cruise control, ignore it. Cruise control is a blunt instrument for Americans. Rely on something more sensitive: your foot. Speaking of which, don't drive in big shoes. They take away the sensitivity you need.

    - Think carefully about what electrical appliances you need. Even Terry Wogan takes a dibble of power from the engine. And that's power which is costing you £1.18 a litre.

    - Never use your heated rear window unless you can't see a thing. It's the same story with your headlights. And don't use the air conditioning either. Switch it off and in a normal family saloon, your fuel consumption will drop by as much as 12 per cent. That's a big, big saving.

    - Next. Speed. Wind it down. You don't need to do 25 mph, but instead of doing 80 on the motorway, try 75. Or if you normally do 120, try 110.

    - 56 mph, by the way, really is the optimum speed for good fuel consumption in most cars. Don't try this in villages though or you will have to spend some time in a prison.

    - When going downhill, ease your throttle down and work with gravity to build up speed. Then, use that momentum to get you up the other side. Using the throttle going up hill is bad.

    - When leaving the lights, accelerate smartly. Not like a bat out of hell. But don't dawdle. Get the car into top gear as quickly as is reasonable. Fifth gear, remember, is no good at all.

    - Don't buy a Toyota Prius.

    You're going to have a hard time in here, but thank you for the heads up. I'm sure they will go quick. I heard the only thing keeping hybrids out of the top spot is their availability.

    thats awsome and i commend you for that. all our priuses on the lot arent 23k the cheapest one is 32k. im in sales its my job to sell. the prius is an expensive toy for most ppl. i have a friend that spent the same amount on a tv and some speakers.
    enjoy your corolla. it should last you over a quarter million miles.
    either way your driving a toyota. :)

    well when you live in a place like i do where you cant spit without hitting a golf coarse and have reserved parking for hybrids and golf carts is right next to the handicap parking its the perfect toy for all the millionaires to buy.

    Sweet jesus! 32k for a prius!?!? That's almost $6k more than my truck!! :eek: I'll buy my truck again, be able to haul whatever I want, and use the $6k I saved to by gas! :laugh:

    In all seriousness though, I would buy a hybrid if it was worth it. Meaning, doesn't cost twice as much as a similar sized gasser, AND got much more mpg. Hell, I might even pay a little more for one if I knew it could get at least 60-80mpg without going to extremes and living on hypermiler forums! :laugh: It just seems pointless when they are more expensive, and I seem to get what most normal Prius drivers get mpg wise in my gasser.
