Green Car Reports

I own a 2011 Honda Insight II, and it is by far the best automobile I've ever owned.
I knew that hybrids were a collaboration between electric and fossil fuel motors, but I didn't really understand exactly what that meant until I did some research and talked with some people who really understood this. I don't think car makers want to go into too deeply into what a hybrid is (the difference between Hondas vs. Prius, for example) because they're afraid it will confuse the customer. I think the subject is fascinating. I think that learning about how a hybrid works is deeply satisfying and only enhances the experience of owning and operating a hybrid. The important thing to remember is that using the instrument displays in a hybrid to guide and change your driving habits is the real secret to better gas mileage.
