it is efficient, economic and serves my
purpose: even though I drive 150 miles
per day, I only fill up once a week as
opposed to my civic I had to fill every
other day. And I only have an 11 gallon
tank. This thing gets recharged when I
go down hill, when I downshift and when
I brake. Never have to plug the babe
in. it has good pick-up when needed,
just as a regular car without a turbo.
It is peppier than the small Subaru I
use to have, thatís for sure.
I drive down from the foothills every
day; my record is 92 miles/gallon one
morning following a 60 miles per hour
flat bed truck for the 65 miles to come
to work. 75mpg is the norm. I went to
LA and back on that mileage, a great
feast for my wallet, believe me.
Availability and more publicity: It is
a peppy car fun to drive. Get EPA to
either NOT put a sticker on the window
or have California let us drive in
