It wasn't too long ago that Auto Bild magazine drove a Lexus RX400 petrol-electric hybrid against a diesel-powered Mercedes-Benz ML320 CDI coast-to-coast across the USA. (http://www.autoblog.com/entry/1234000417056376/)

The diesel proved to be more efficient than the petrol-hybrid, by more than 3mpg.

Perhaps diesel-electric hybrid cars are the way to go. Plus you could run them on dead cats (http://slashdot.org/article.pl?sid=05/09/14/23552 23&tid=133&tid=126)

And for the record, I work from home, only going into the office on average about 1 day a month. When I do go in, I usually carpool to the park-and-ride, take the bus to catch the ferry and then walk the rest of the way to my office.
