Re: [vox] [OT] Alternate Vehicle Advice

I haven't seen a diesel vehicle mentioned. Diesels' get nearly as good mileage as hybrids and are popular in Europe. I looked and VW sells a diesel Golf... but not in CA! I'm curious what people on the list thinks about diesels. I had one once (VW Jetta) and really liked it.

Honda Civic Hybrid Sedan is looking very tempting and
the lowest online price ive found so far is 11k so if
anyone is looking to sell one Im interested...

FYI, using the cheapest gas, in the long haul, I get ~42 MPG with my
2003 Civic Hybrid.

That's the average it's registering from the past ~1500-2000 miles of
driving (which includes 30-60 mins of commute time to/from work each
day; sometimes on 101, sometimes on residential), as well as the 100
mile trip out to Davis or Santa Rosa each weekend that we seem to do.

Keep suggestions coming. I drive about 200miles per
day so... Anything helps

So with the Civic, that'd be 5 gallons of gas per day, let's say.
Filling it up every other day for about $20-25, that'd end up costing
about $65 per week.  How does that compare to what you're doing w/ the van? :)
