Benefits Of Buying An Electric Bike

You probably have heard of all of the hype about electric bikes. So what is an electric bike? Well it's basically a bicycle with motor attached to run the vehicle. You guessed it. The motor is electric or battery operated hence the name electric bike, e-bike or electric scooter. E-bikes are a new concept to people living in Western countries even though electric scooters are very popular in countries such as India and China. The first attempts to put motor on the bicycle date as far back as 1860s in Paris. Modern technology e-bikes of course look nothing like their grand ancestors but the concept and the idea behind them still remains the same. They are made for convenience and pleasure of the rider.

So what are the benefits of using this new way of transportation, e-bike?

Freedom to ride one. Electric scooters do not require their riders to purchase insurance or to get a drivers' license. This make e-bikes perfect for students or people with suspended drivers' license (wearing a helmet is required at all times).

Affordability. E-bikes are very affordable to purchase as well as to ride. Average e-bike costs anywhere between US $800.00 to US $3600.00. No insurance policy makes electric scooters a lot cheaper to operate. The parts as well as the repairs of e-bikes are substantially cheaper than on your average motorcycle or vehicle (that is of course if you need any repairs, e-bikes are build to last). Most of the parts are available online and most of the basic repairs could be done by the riders themselves. Because electric scooters are battery operated users save a lot of money on fuel (especially with price of fuel rising through the roof). Not to mention the positive impact electric bikes have on the environment.

Electric bikes are very safe to ride as they are in the same category as bicycles. E-bikes are allowed in the bicycle lane. Being allowed in the bicycle lane also saves its users a lot of time. Never again will they be stuck in traffic and because electric bikes are faster than regular bicycle they are a better alternative of transportation.

Electric scooters' compact and light design makes them perfect for high traffic urban areas. Never will the rider ever have to worry about finding a parking space or storage.

It is clear that e-bikes make perfect alternative transportation method. Especially for these of us who live in high traffic urban areas.

How Many Miles Per Gallon?

How many miles per gallon can you gain extra for free? If you want to cut down on your running costs, here are three easy steps that you can take almost immediately at no cost to you that will help you to stretch out the miles between fill ups at the petrol/gas station.

Motorists these days are having a really hard time with the ever increasing cost of petrol/gas and diesel hitting their pockets hard, so every little bit we can do to help ease the situation is welcome.

Improving the fuel efficiency of our vehicles is now becoming a way of life for many people and the combustion powered vehicle is ripe for some consideration to help with increased miles per gallon.

Easy Step #1 - Trim Down the Load.

If you are carrying around unnecessary weight in your car or truck this places more strain on the engine that requires more energy to move it along. By taking out any objects or equipment that you don't use or need, will reduce the kerb weight so you lighten the load requiring less throttle to move the vehicle along and saving you fuel.

Easy Step #2 - Switch Off Air Conditioning.

The air conditioning is the biggest culprit of robbing miles per gallon in your vehicle.It can increase your fuel consumption by as much as ten per cent. If you can do without it leave it switched off.

Other in car electrical systems also use energy to power them which has to be compensated for from the battery. Your car or truck has to replace this lost power by generating the alternator which is driven by the engine.

Heated wind screens and radios can also add to the problem so if you don't really need these consider switching them off.

Easy Step #3 - Remove Excess Baggage.

Roof bars, roof racks and bull bars all affect the aerodynamics of your vehicle. If you can do without them it's a good idea to remove them altogether as a streamlined car is much more economical and efficient.

These three things combined could have quite an effect on your running costs and you could save yourself quite a lot of money over the course of a year just by being mindful of what can place drag on your car and rectifying it.

By implementing these tips now can help you to achieve more miles per gallon.

HHO Gas Generator Kits - What Exactly Are They?

With the ever increasing fuel prices at the pumps, hundreds of people have converted their ordinary gasoline vehicles to run on hydrogen gas, with the aid of HHO gas generator kits. With this conversion, they have noticed a significant difference in money spent at the pumps, by mostly getting better gas mileage.

Many people have also noticed an improvement in the way their engine runs i.e. cleaner burning and smoother operating, resulting in a longer lasting engine, which means, less money spent on maintenance repair bills.

So how exactly do these HHO gas generator kits work?

The hydrogen kits are small reservoirs which contain ordinary tap water which is mixed with electricity produced from your car battery. This in turn is fed in to the intake manifold of your car.

At this point it mixes with the ordinary gasoline and fed in to your engine resulting in a cleaner more efficient engine. It also helps to prevent a build up of carbon deposits which would normally occur from ordinary gasoline. Owners will also notice an increase in gas mileage and better running performance from the engine.

Hydrogen burns more efficiently than ordinary gasoline and cuts down harmful exhaust emissions, making it much better on the environment. It does not just work on gasoline fuelled cars, but also on diesel. In fact it works on most makes and models. The hydrogen kits are small enough to be installed under the hood of a car next to the engine, and are totally reversible. If at any time you wish to change your vehicle for another model, the hydrogen kit can easily be removed and installed in to your new one.

Advantages of using a HHO gas generator

There are many advantages of having a HHO gas conversion kit installed in to your car; here are just few.

A much cleaner burning engine,
Longer engine life,
Less maintenance repair costs
Less gasoline used
A smoother and quieter running engine
Gas mileage improvements.

Where can I find out about the HHO gas generator kits?

The internet is a good place to start when looking for information. There are hundreds of sites that will list detailed information.

There are sites which will sell the complete kits needed to convert a car to run on hydrogen. Such kits come with detailed manuals explaining each step of the process. HHO conversion kits can work out costly in the initial outlay, and it might take a while to recoup the money spent out, although the complete kits are very convenient and easy to install making them a very popular choice.

Also for anyone with a basic knowledge of the general running of engines, is possible to build one of these HHO gas generators for personal use. There are many sites that sell step by step guides for those who want to build there own.

The guides typically have a directory of all the hardware stores and auto parts store where the parts can be easily purchased at very reasonable prices. A complete hydrogen kit can be fitted up and running for around $150.

So if you are one of the thousands of people who are interested in saving money on fuel and getting a much better running performance from your car, you should check out the sites and see how easy and how cheaply it would be to convert your car to run on hydrogen with the use of these HHO gas generator kits and start to reap the benefits and get more MPG.

Electric Cars - A True Mass Product or a Niche?

Well, both the Nissan Leaf and Chevrolet Volt have been on the market for a while. Both were introduced in slow roll outs at the end of last year. So enough time has passed to ascertain how they are selling. Edmunds.com, a major auto site, has reported that between January 1, 2011 and April 1, 2011 1536 Chevrolet Volts were sold while, during the same period, only 471 Leafs have been sold. In March Chevrolet announced that sales of the Volt would rise in May and that they expected that 10,000 Volts would be delivered by the end of the year.

All the latest reports about Leaf sales have not been encouraging. But Nissan-Renault President Carlos Ghosn doesn't seem too worried. He was bold enough to announce as early as May 2010 that the Leaf "is already sold out." That announcement came more than six months before the actual release of the car. So how could he make such a claim? He based his numbers back then on the number of orders Nissan received for the car. And back in May 2010 Nissan reported that they received 13,000 orders. People who thought that they would want to get the car when released could go to a Nissan website and place their order and pay out a deposit of $99. Well, the initial and real sales figures don't seem to be matching up with the early orders. So, the obvious question is, are these people waiting for some reason to pick up their Leaf or have they decided to give up their deposit.

The point is that many people not in the auto industry truly expect that the electric car won't be more than a niche product at least until the infrastructure is set up well enough to service them. By now you all know that electric car owners have to plug their car into an electrical outlet so that the car's battery can be charged so that the car will run. Companies like General Electric and others are now offering special charging stations that can be set up at a home that will charge the vehicles faster than the common house electrical system. But these stations have only recently been released to the market. Moreover, major cities are locating charging stations in parking lots and parking structures, in malls and in other locations where people frequent, but as of now, there are not enough of them. And finally the electric grid needs to be upgraded so that it can take on the thousands or even millions of electric cars some people expect to be on the road someday. Could this be slowing sales?

Then there is a little problem known as "Range Anxiety." Since the true 100 percent electric car relies on a fully charged battery to travel, there are potential buyers of the car that are holding back because they fear that the battery will go dead before they reach their destination. Range Anxiety is a legitimate concern with the Leaf, but the Volt also has a gasoline engine that kicks in when the battery is drain. The engine works a generator so that the car can continue the trip. All the other cars being classified as electric cars are more like the Leaf than the Volt. There is no gasoline engine to bail you out.

Price could also be a consideration. The Volt, for example, has a manufacturers Suggested retail price (MSRP) of around $40,000. That is not cheap for the typical new car buyer. Still, the federal government is offering a tax credit of around $7,000 for people who buy an electric car. So the original sticker shock may be subdued somewhat.

The Chevrolet Volt and the Nissan Leaf are not the only electric cars available or will be available soon. In fact, the list of companies offering or will be offering an electric car is lengthy.

Many have been impressed with an electric car that will be soon released from Tesla called the Model S. First, it is expensive. However, if you have the money then you will be getting a car that eliminates "Range Anxiety" because it will be offered with a variety of mile range packs including 160, 230 and 300. The car can also sprint from 0 to 60 mph in just 5.6 seconds and will have a top speed of 120 mph. Moreover, it is said to have a quick charge feature that allows the car to charge in 45 minutes. The company also intends to release an electric sports Roadster.

Another company that has been gaining interest is Fisker which offers the Karma. This pure electric car has two driving modes -- Stealth and Sport. It has a top speed of 95 mph in the Stealth mode and sprints from 0-60 in 7.9 seconds. The Sports Mode has a top speed of 125 mph and goes from 0-60 in 5.9 seconds. It can also generate 403 horsepower. And, by the way, it has a hefty price tag of $80,000.

There are a number of pure electric cars that are available now or soon will be. Some may be a little less pricey.

The electric Ford Focus is scheduled for release later this year. It has a range of 100 miles. and a MSRP has not yet been announced.

The Coda Electric Sedan is actually built in China. It has a range of 120 miles, an MSRP of $4,800 and will be available only in California by the end of 2012.

The Mitsubishi i, also known as the MiEV i, is one-third the size of the Leaf, can generate 63 horsepower and has a top speed of about 80 mph. Range is about 75-85 miles. It will enter the market late this year in California, Oregon, Washington, and Hawaii, followed by a launch in the northeastern part of the U.S. It should be available through the country by the end of 2012.

The Smart ED (Electric Drive) has a range of about 74 to 80 miles, and a re-charge time of three and a half hours. It will only be available via lease at $599 per month.

Pininfarina Blue, an Italian sports car with four seats, five doors and solar panels on the roof has a range of 150 miles. A Smartphone app will be available to monitor the state of charge of the battery and allow the owner to start the air conditioner and heater remotely.

So the electric car has only really been a part of the market for only say six or so months now. Of course, a lot more are coming including a lot of cheaper three-wheel vehicles. However, can one say that the electric car will be our savior? Well, in January 2011 executive chairman of Ford Motors, Bill Ford Jr. claims that the electric car will push Detroit to a new era of progress. We feel that the jury is still out on that one.

Converting Your Car to Electricity

With the recent hikes in gas prices everyone wants to know how to save at the pump. What many people fail to realize is how affordable it can be to convert your car to electricity; save 100% at the pump and pay only a fraction of that in electricity to power your vehicle.

When considering converting your car to electricity from gas however there are several important factors to consider. Remember this won't be an overnight project; for most people this conversion takes up to several weeks. But what else is there to remember in how to convert your car to electricity?

Ideally when doing this you will have a spare car; simply an old donor car from the junk yard will do fine. Several key points on converting a car to electricity however:
You must use a lightweight car for this. While heavier cars are possible using lightweight cars save on every end; less power needed to get them going and to stop as well. If you're stuck with a large old truck there's not much point in converting it. An old small car however will do the job just perfectly.
Room for the deep cycle batteries. Instead of a gas tank your car will now have batteries; while they must be accessible remember there will be alot of them, so it is imperative to not have these hidden, but to have room for them somewhere accessible. Small cars are great, but you need to be able to spread the load out so the car doesn't tip over.
Manual transmissions only! This point cannot be stressed enough; automatic transmissions simply will not work for conversion to electric cars.
You have to have room to do the conversion. Without the proper garage space, or room outside you're wasting your time considering to convert it to electricity.
You will need a DC motor. While AC motors are possible to use they are significantly more expensive and notoriously difficult to insert into your vehicle. A simple used but still in good condition DC battery can be acquired very inexpensively and can effectively power your own electric powered car.
Use a common donor car. If you use something too exotic or rare you quickly run the risk of not being able to find replacement parts, and this can be crucial. Parts break, and things happen; use a common car or you may not be able to find replacement parts.

When you're ready to start your conversion remember you won't be the only one to do this; use all resources available. Look online for help and advice on doing it. And most importantly remember it's not an overnight project; but when you have completed your conversion you will have a truly unique energy efficient and affordable car.

How to Buy a Think City EV for Half Price

Electric vehicles are expensive and prohibitively so for most car buying consumers. Until prices drop low enough, sales will be limited to a few hundred units per month, perhaps even less for certain low demand models.

EV Incentives

Incentives are helping to lower the price of some electric vehicles as the federal government offers a $7,500 tax credit. Others states offer discounts too and, in the case of the Think City, cars can be had for about half price when all other discounts are considered. Is there a catch? Yes, because if you don't live in certain geographic areas your cost will be far higher.

Think is "thinking" that its current promotion is an excellent deal, but on close inspection it simply isn't. Autoblog and other automotive enthusiast websites have caught on the "special deal" and have found out that consumers' final costs may not be so low after all.

Think City Price

The base price for the Think City is $35,495, which about $3,000 more than the Nissan LEAF, but $9,000 less than the Smart ForTwo EV. The Chevrolet Volt retails for $41,000 and other electric models cost significantly more. Still, the gas driven Ford Fiesta can be had for about less than half the cost of a Think City means you have to be an electric vehicle devotee to benefit from buying any EV.

The incentives offered by Think include the federal tax credit which immediately lowers the City to $27,995. If you live in Oregon, you can take a state credit of $7,000 which drops the price of your Think City to $20,995. The special Think is offering is a $4,000 ZEV discount which drops the price to $16,995 or $17,995 when the destination charge is factored in. You now have a car that is comparably priced with most small cars on the market, but one that doesn't consumer a single drop of gasoline. Visits to the gas pump are now history and the savings you'll realize will be immediate and accumulate year after year.

State Tax Credits

There is one catch with the Think City plan, however. And it is this: in states where tax credits are not offered, the ZEV discount disappears to. That means after the federal tax credit, which doesn't kick until you file your income taxes the following year, the cost of your Think City is $28,995. That's hardly a good buy and it represents an amount that will take years to justify, if ever.

Think's "inventory clearance sale" is available online where customers select a car based on the name assigned to it by the company. A cursory look at the website revealed that "Thelma" was available, featuring a black paint job. Like all Think models, you have to express your interest online by filling out a short survey. Think will then contact you, but be prepared to find that certain incentives may not be available to you, so think again.

How Does Bio-Diesel Work?

With ever increasing fuel costs, and concerns about greenhouse gas emissions damaging the climate, many of us are looking for alternatives. One of these is bio-diesel, but how does bio-diesel work and how well does it answer these problems? The quick answer is this fuel works in exactly the same way as regular diesel, and it can be used in most modern engines without any modification. Below are some points you should consider if you plan to make the switch.

Environment:

Making use of bio-diesel reduces greenhouse gas pollutants a lot more successfully compared with ethanol, gasoline, and standard diesel fuel. It will in addition help you to alter your power usage towards better renewable options. There's a 90% decrease in emissions if you choose to employ 100 % pure bio-fuel above fossil fuel diesel. The reason for this is that oil-bearing crops like soybeans soak up co2 (carbon dioxide) out of the surroundings as they grow. When this vegetable oil is made into fuel exactly the same quantity of carbon dioxide will be introduced into the environment when it is burned by your engine. This action is known as being "Carbon Neutral," since there's an identical trade in co2 usage by the plant and discharge by your engine. Burning non-renewable fuels continuously increases the co2 load of the surroundings, because the co2 in the fossil oil was absorbed by plants millions of years in the past.

Switching:

If you decide to make the switch to this fuel then you don't necessarily have to go from regular to full bio in one step. You can buy a bio and regular diesel blend, if you live in Europe chances are you already use 20% bio blend as commercially available fuels are required to contain at least this much in their composition. Whilst most modern engines can use the fuel in its pure form without modification, older engines may need to be converted. This is because older engines tend to have natural rubber seals, and bio-diesel degrades rubber over time. Modern engines with their synthetic silicone rubber components are not affected.

Better running:

Many people using bio-diesel report that their vehicles start better, and travel much more smoothly. So the advantages of this fuel definitely outnumber the disadvantages. This kind of technology can potentially be applied to numerous kinds of motor vehicles and applications: trucks, boats, buses, trains, vans, construction machinery, agricultural machinery, generators, and automobiles, in fact anything powered by regular polluting diesel can be almost instantly made greener just by switching to this fuel.

An additional favorable effect of this renewable fuel will be the improvement in the lifespan of the vehicle's power-plant. This is a significantly cleaner fuel, so the harmful effect of deposits of soot and sulfur on the motor is drastically decreased, plus it has a much better natural lubrication effect which reduces wear. All this means you will get a much longer life out of your car or truck.

As you can see if you are wondering how does bio-diesel Work? It works exactly like regular diesel, with the added advantages of being kinder to your engine and to the environment. There are many reasons to run your vehicle on clean renewable bio fuel, the advantages are obvious so what is stopping you from making the switch today?

Make your own bio-diesel:

Did you know you can save money by producing your own bio fuel at home? For comprehensive instructions visit this make bio-diesel website at www.how-to-make-biodiesel-today.blogspot.com/.

How To Increase Mileage And Save Money On Fuel!

Many say the economy is getting better. Do you really believe that when you go to the gas stations to fuel your vehicle? Fuel prices are outrageous. Here are a few tips to help you increase mileage, save fuel and keep more money in your pocket.

Foot off the Pedal

Remember the old saying, "Put your pedal to the medal?" I use to hear my mom say this every time there was someone going really slow in front of her. She wanted them to hurry up and get out of her way.

Now days, you need to keep your foot off the pedal if you want to save money on fuel. If you lighten up on the accelerator you actually get more miles per gallon. When driving 55mph versus 65mph you can gain up to two miles per gallon.

Keep A Well Oiled Machine

A vehicle needs care and maintenance just like your body does. If you eat donuts everyday and do not exercise, your body will get sluggish and lazy. If you do not keep you engine running properly with oil changes and air filter changes, your engine will run sluggish and lazy. A well maintained engine will burn less fuel.

Overexerting you engine will also burn more fuel. Avoid the start and stops as much as possible. If you live in a big city with tons of lights, then just ease on the gas pedal when going and gently put on the brake when stopping. This process will also help maintain your transmission if it is automatic.

Running Your Air

In most places, especially during the summer, it is almost impossible to drive without your air conditioner on. When driving on an open highway, using the air conditioner with all your windows closed, will decrease wind resistance. When driving in stop and go traffic, if you open your windows and turn off the air, then you will lighten your fuel consumption.

Brakes And Tires

If you live in snow country, then you use studs and big snow tires. As soon as the weather permits, change them, because they will cause you to burn more fuel.

Have a habit of keeping your foot on the brake and gas pedal at the same time? Stop! The smallest pressure on your brake will cause drag, wearing out your brakes sooner, wearing out your tires sooner, and it will cause more fuel usage.

Hydrogen Generator

Another way to save money on fuel, is to have a hydrogen generator installed on your vehicle. Also known as an HHO Kit. It is very safe and can increase your mileage up to 40% to 60%. It also helps clean up our air quality by burning all the excess fuel that comes out of the exhaust pipe. It will fit on any size vehicle and works with gas engines or diesel engines.

I have one installed on my 05 Dodge diesel truck. I have already increased my mileage by 25%, which has kept more money in my pocket and best of all, I am helping keep our air clean. This is all thanks to Make Fuel Safe.

Benjamin Franklin quoted: "A penny saved is a penny earned!"

I am saving every penny I can when fueling my vehicle and making our air quality better by following these tips, how about you?

Automotive and Aviation Composite Skin and Battery Bodies

Several companies in the automotive sector are talking about using the body of a car as the batteries for hybrid automobiles. Volvo seems to be leading the charge or at least is one of the companies which has been promoting the concept in Public Relations pieces. Indeed, I suppose the military is all over this sort of research and development, perhaps in their aerospace "black-projects" and we just haven't heard about this.

Years ago, the concept came to mind and I was trying to reason just how this might work. I had conceived a graphene/carbon nanotube composite covered with a non-conductive material outer and inner skin as part of the composite strategy. This would keep the material from shocking occupants or anything it touched. Since carbon nanotubes and graphene conduct electricity, and if copper was put inside the nano-tubes, or some other such material, these sheets could become not only part of the car's structure but also its battery.

Why bother you ask? Well, several reasons.

Space: batteries take up a lot of space in modern-day hybrid cars. That space could be used for luggage and storage, or the cars could be made smaller, or have additional pop-up seats in case extra passengers were to be taken.

Weight: batteries weigh a lot, even ion lithium batteries or nickel hydride batteries weigh quite a bit. By reducing the weight, you could also reduce the size of the motor for the car. Remember also that carbon Nanotubes for this could be part of the structure of the car and eliminate many large frame pieces which are generally made out of steel, reducing the weight even further. And remember carbon Nanotubes are 50 times stronger than steel, and they don't rust.

Efficiency: it has been estimated that batteries made from carbon nanotube structures, and carbon foam would be more efficient than the insides of the current ion lithium batteries.

Cost: since the skin of the car would be the battery for the car, and the superstructure as well, this would lower the cost of the car. Currently many hybrids such as the Toyota Prius have batteries which cost between 7,500 and 10,000 dollars. And often they need to be re-replaced every eight years.

Indeed, there are a lot of reasons why graphene and carbon nanotube composites are a better choice for car batteries. Please consider all this and think on it. If you are an engineer, scientist, or an expert on hybrid Automobiles, please shoot me an e-mail at your earliest possible convenience.

Gas Tank Draining Your Budget? Go Hydrogen for Fuel!

Getting ready for summer? Ready to start packing up that tent or rv and hit the road? Did you save any money for gas? Fuel prices may have dropped a small amount, but just wait for the big drive of summer vacation. You and I both know the fuel prices will go right back up again.

Analyst are already predicting that summer of 2011 will come in higher than the previous record back in 2008. Economist are saying that people are feeling poorer than they really are because of having to spend so much in fuel just to go anywhere.

Stores Blame Gas Prices!

Wal-Mart is even blaming the high gas prices for having the lowest sales this year. Target is claiming they have fewer clothing sales due to the high fuel prices. Every time the cost of fuel increases by just fifty cents it takes Seventy Billion Dollars out of the economy. If the average person drives a vehicle with a 20 gallon tank and pays $5 a gallon for fuel, it costs them a hundred dollar bill every time they fill up.

Statistics say, nowadays families are spending more on fuel than on cars or recreation. The high prices of fuel are crimping the social life style as many of us know it. There is a 40% increase in spending on fuel than normal, only because of the high gas prices, not because there are more people traveling.

Increase Mileage 60%!

Now lets talk about installing a hydrogen on demand kit in your vehicle. A hydrogen kit is also known as a hydrogen generator, hydrogen on demand or water for fuel. After installing this kit on your car, you can increase your mileage by up to 60%.

Depending on the type of car, the age of the car, and the type driver of the car, the percentage of mileage increase will vary. Lets say the average person gets a 30% increase in fuel mileage, now when someone fills their 20 gallon tank, it will be just like keeping thirty dollars in your pocket. The water for fuel kit is very safe, works on any size vehicle, and it does not matter if the auto runs on gas or diesel.

People have to use their vehicle to go places no matter where they live. In some big cities you could ride your bicycle, but what happens if you have small children? What happens if you need to get a lot of groceries? People are traveling to go to the doctors, the dentist, taking children to school, especially if they live in a rural area.

We All Pay The Price!

We are all hopeful that some time in the future there will be some sort of vehicle that will not be dependent on fuel, but until that happens we all have to pay the price. So why continue to shell out unwanted money when you could be saving?

Installing a hydrogen generator will save you money, the money that you can now go on that summer vacation with. Money that you can now buy more food with, or even pay more of your bills. The cost for the kit is minimal for what you will be saving. You pay for it once and use it for the rest of your life. Get a new car, just change it over. These kits even work on boats. So lets start having a fun summer vacation again. Lets increase our mileage, put money back into our pocket and best of all help lower green house emissions.

Advantages of Owning a Green Car

One of the most controversial topics in today's automotive industry is the green car. Although the green car industry is still in its fledgling stages, there are many advantages to investing in a green vehicle, from the economic to the environmental. Here are a few of the highlights in the green car debate.

Green cars are, by nature, more friendly to nature than regular fuel guzzlers. Electric or hybrid motors give off fewer harmful emissions than petrol-powered motors and cause less damage to the atmosphere. Additionally, green vehicles use less of the earth's rapidly diminishing fossil fuels.

There are two types of green, "save the planet" green and "save the pocketbook" green. Most of these cars hit both of these marks at once, saving hard-earned cash while saving the world at the same time. Fuel savings are hard to estimate because of the huge differences in driving habits, fuel costs, and electricity costs, but many experts estimate that green vehicle owners spend from five to ten times less on fuel. Even though they still have to plug in at night, which usually causes a spike in their electric bill, electricity is much cheaper than fuel in most places. Green cars, especially hybrid cars, are flexible and can be used as needed. Hybrid cars can stay in electric mode for short drives, allowing their owners to get to work and back without using a single drop of petrol. This can save huge amounts of money over the long term. Then, when they are needed for longer trips, hybrid green cars can be immediately switched into petrol mode and easily undertake a cross country outing. The owner has complete control over the way the hybrid car is driven. These cars are not limited to short distances, and they are also not limited to perpetual pollution of the planet. They can drive on pure, electric-only mode when possible and still get all the benefits of a regular car when necessary.

Another huge benefit to green cars is the reduction in road and fuel taxes their owners are able to enjoy. Most road taxes are set according to the type of fuel the car uses as well as the amount of emissions it releases into the atmosphere. Most green autos have low enough emissions levels that they are exempted from road taxes. Also, because they use less fuel, their fuel tax level is greatly reduced.
