1993 Civic Del Sol S-model. 1.5l engine. It is 10 years old, has 180,000 miles, a mild knock on excelleration, and STILL GETS 40 MPG.

A Honda CB/CL-450 will get close to 100 MPG if tuned properly. Motorcylces are not always practical, but at $500 and $50 per year for insurance, it beats the hell out of anything going. You can get 4 of these things in the space that most of these SUVs require (sometimes 6), and carying a passenger means you get 8 people in the same space at a stop-light. If you truely worry about the environment and our impact on our surroundings, pick up a motorcycle and go eat some bugs.

Hybrid-schmybrid. It's all just a fad that you are willing to pay for. When good engineering gets replaced by fad-driven politics, we're all screwed. Please do more homework before buying into such garbage.
