RE: [RC] [RC] Commute - Hybrid Vehicles - Jessica Cameron

My little car, a Mazda Protege, gets 34-35 miles/gallon consistently (that's combining intown and highway) and only cost me $2,000. Runs like a dream and only have to change the oil in it on a regular basis. This little car gets ran around a lot too, I usually drive about 50-60 miles/day with commuting, commuting for the nags, and running errands. It may not be the newest car out there, but I like it and it's totally reliable, starting in -30 degree weather without a block heater every time for the last 3 winters, and great A/C. I really need to get a block heater though, (much easier on the car).
