Hybrid cars get better gas mileage than cars with standard engines?
Hybrid cars combine an internal combustion engine with a battery system to improve efficiency. In many cars, this translates into improved fuel economy, but some hybrids use those savings for added power. If you're shopping for a hybrid, check the fuel economy rating!

Currently in the U.S. the IRS allows .55 per mile as a standard mileage deduction.
Four wheelers because they average 30-50 mpg compared to a vehicles 17mpg.
The following is bunk. Don't believe it. The short answer is YES. Many people say NO and I'm going to explain why. The people who say NO have either NOT TRIED IT THEMSELVE…S or enjoy ripping ideas that work apart because they can't see how it will work. Without trying it themselves they will never know. The fact is that hundreds of thousands of people around the globe are enjoying better gas mileage as a result of building a hydrogen generator and installing it in their vehicle. Just a quick search on Youtube will show the the thousands of DIFFERENT PEOPLE all experimenting with this exciting technology and all of them will show you improvements in their gas mileage. Another fact is that the US government will pay upto $2000 in tax rebates to anyone who is willing to convert their car to run on HHO gas as well as fuel. Another sure fire way to show that it does work. It works because the HHO gas increases the octane rating of the fuel which makes the fuel fully combust as opposed to only partially combust like it usually does. Did you know that up to 70% of the fuel we use is wasted through the exhaust pipe as unburnt fuel or wasted as heat? HHO makes the fuel fully combust so we don't waste the fuel and it also makes the fuel burn cooler so less fuel is wasted on heat and pretty much 100% of the fuel we buy now drives the vehicle. I've installed a fuel cell on my diesel van. To be honest I was skeptical as it all seemed a bit far fetched. The first one i made didn't work very well as it wasn't properly sealed. I made a second one out of better materials and since then I've been seeing an increase of around 40% in my fuel economy. A tank of fuel used to take me 385 miles ... with my HHO fuel cell now fitted, one tank of fuel will take me 540 miles. It's a massive saving of fuel and money which is welcome in todays rocky financial climate. So YES it does work and I'd recommend you to build your own and start seeing savings like everyone else is!

It is very simple as speed doubles resistance quadrouples. It takes less gas to overcome the wind. Try walking in to the wind with a sheetof plywood facing the wind and then p…ut it on edge. More areodynamic and uses less energy

I am a Hybrid technician, so I guess I can offer some input here. The question is a little strange to me, because most people ask the opposite, How is a Hybrid better than a …regular car? Anyway, there are some issues to owning a hybrid that must be taken into consideration. Right now the cost of a hybrid is prohibitive. There was a study done recently by a consumer group, that calculated that in order for the hybrid to economically be feasible, gas would need to reach close to $9/gal. I don't know if that's true, but hybrids generally are more expensive than the same car in the regular gas model. Another issue is serviceability. Some shops are even afraid to change the oil on a hybrid, and honestly some shops shouldn't. While the gasoline engine part of a hybrid is the same as always, the electrical is completely different, with some areas containing voltages in the range of as much as 500 volts! Interestingly, the transmission is also part of the hybrid system, and contains high voltage. These high voltages are also a concern of rescue workers in the event of an accident. They are concerned about cutting open a vehicle to save someone, if there is a danger that the rescuer may be electrocuted. Another factor to consider is that once a hybrid is out of warranty, what will it cost to repair it? The high voltage battery, located in the rear, on a hybrid can cost over $1000.00, and requires a fork lift to remove and install. So I guess the four main areas of concern surrounding a hybrid is the initial cost, serviceability, and safety in the event of an accident, and cost of repair.
Depends on the type car. Some cars would get close to 20-24 mpg and larger cars would get less. About 16 mpg was average.
Unknown, but probably not. The battery will probably die first and it is expensive to replace.
Here are the highest mileage 2005 model cars. Some older cars meet or exceed these but they are few and far between. Think Geo Metro, Honda Civic CRX, Toyota Starlet, Toyota T…ercel, diesel Volkswagens, and the like. This list is pretty much complete, I was bored and decided to get all the info from http://www.fueleconomy.gov which is tough to search sometimes. These listings show make/model/specific options/city/highway and only include cars that attain at least 20mpg city AND get OVER 30mpg highway.

I'll add three more to the list because I like them, but they are older cars: 1985-1986 Ford Escort or Mercury Lynx 1.9L carbureted with 4-speed 36/42 1995-2001 Geo or Chevrolet Metro or Suzuki Swift (4-cyl) automatic 30/34 1996-2002 Saturn SL/SL1/SW1/SC1 5-speed 29/40 The 1995 Metro with 4-cylnder and automatic that I used to have got a consistent 32mpg no matter how hard or gentle I drove it. The 2000 Saturn SL I have now gets 37mpg in mixed driving, and my old 1986 Lynx always got close to 40mpg in mixed driving.
A hybrid car uses either gas, or diesel, and electricity. Hybrids are vehicles that use two types of power for their fuel. In fact even submarines are considered hybrids… because they use nuclear power and electricity.
Your car's gas mileage is the distance a car will travel in regular driving conditions (city/hwy.) with a certain amount of fuel. Usually, in America, gas mileage is mea…sured in Miles Per Gallon, or Mpg. This is the number of miles traveled by the car using 1 gallon of fuel.
Answer . A free flow muffler can improve mileage but by not by much. It would take a long time to recoup the cost of a new muffler.
I,d say 3 to 4 miles Bad guess. Early gas cars had much smaller engines similar to motorcycle engines and the gas mileage for a model T Ford was, and still is for the few stil…l running, between 14-20 mpg. The engines were smaller than a VW's at about 20 hp and top speed was only 40 mph
Because a truck is typically 1) heavier, 2) less aerodynamic, 3) has lower gear ratios (to better pull/haul a load), and 4) they don't *have* to get good mileage - Federal CA…FE standards don't apply to most trucks I hate it when people pull a bunch of random nonsense out of their A** trying to sound smart. CAFE Standards as of 2007 apply to all vehicles under 10000lbs GVWR sold in The United States of America and the new CAFE standards that are going to apply to model years 2012-2017 are going to be even worse.
Due to the heavy use of batteries and extra electronics, the overall life might tend to be slightly shorter then a conventional automobile.
yes much better they will save you sooo much money and are better for the invierment.
In Hybrid Cars
If electric cars are charged using renewable energy then they are better than hybrid cars, because hybrids still burn some fossil fuels. However, electric cars charged wit…h fossil fuel energy would not be better than hybrid cars.
