More reason to buy a Hybrid.

This month the Honda Civic GX was named the greenest car of the year by the American Council for an Energy Efficient Economy (ACEEE). The decision was based on the “green” score determined by tailpipe emissions, fuel consumption, and greenhouse-gas emissions. Opting to use a hybrid rather than a gas guzzler, you can literally save the earth a couple of tons of greenhouse gases!

 The following is a fuel economy guide to the Top Ten Cars, collaborated by EPA and Energy Department:

1. Toyota Prius – 48/45

2. Honda Civic Hybrid – 40/45

3. Nissan Altima Hybrid – 35/33

4. Ford Escape Hybrid FWD; Mazda Tribute Hybrid 2WD;
     
Mercury Mariner Hybrid FWD – 34/31

5. Smart ForTwo convertible; Smart ForTwo coupe – 33/41

6. Toyota Camry Hybrid – 33/34

7. Volkswagen Jetta (manual, diesel);Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen 30/41

8. Volkswagen Jetta (automatic, diesel);Volkswagen Jetta SportWagen       (automatic, diesel) – 29/40

9. Toyota Yaris (manual) – 29/36
