Hybrid Cars Save Owners Plenty of Money

First off, I apologize for the obviousness of the title of this post, as I’m sure it didn’t give you any insight that you didn’t already have.

That being said, I came across an interesting article that spells out how a guy was able to “save” $3,000 by owning a Honda Insight as opposed to the car that he was going to buy.  I use the term “save” rather loosely because it’s not like the guy came out ahead in the transaction.  By his calculations, owning the Honda Insight cost roughly $10,000 to operate, while the car he would have purchased (a Mazda 626) would have cost him around $13,000 to operate.

Anyway, I do have another point to make besides the obvious one that hybrid cars will help you save some money.

For those of you who drive regular cars (that would be most of us) not all hope is lost.  By maximizing your car’s gas mileage, you, too, can save hundreds or thousands of dollars over the life of your car.

By simply watching how fast you drive, taking it easy on the acceleration, getting all the extra weight out of your car and performing basic car maintenance, you can increase your vehicle’s gas mileage by up to 20%.  Depending on how much you drive, this could easily add up to a savings of several hundred dollars per year.

And, with gas prices rising over 5% in the past two weeks, now’s as good a time as any to get started.
