20 years ago in my Golf 1 turbo disel I was driving 1100 km (683 miles) with 50 litres (11 gallons) which makes about 62 mpg fuel consumption in real world driving. What about modern turbo diesels? Which raises the question why nobody makes diesel hybrids, makes much more sense for me? If you really want to be eco friendly go by Tesla car, although I am not sure because you need to calculate the price of the car as well - obviously with more complex and expensive cars goes more emmissions during manufacturing the car, so in the end if you buy second hand, like 20 years old Gold 1 TD, will be much better for the environment is it? Or maybe for a change stop bombing all over the world. That would be really eco friendly think to do

It is well known fact that all hybrid cars are more fashion statement scam then anything real, it is like Macs and PCs - a more a fashion item.

Here is the last prove the big BMW 520 is much more fuel efficient in REAL world then a Prius joke.

I completely agree that the driving style affects the car's consumption, however this test should have been done in more realistic conditions. I mean, how often is a Prius driven "as fast as possibile"? Comparing the consumption in conditions one could find in a city (traffic lights, low speed) would have been better, to me.

So a Prius driven carefully in optimum conditions is more economical than a couple of unspecified cars. Not hugely impressive.

Can you state what mpg you get from your Prius? Real mpg, not from the onboard computer (see the road test in my last post).

I drive a green prius. I love those cars. For driving around town you do save a lot of gas, it all depends on how fast you go. Driving back and forth from work, in one week it only has to be filled up once. In the our other cars they have to be refilled every 2-3 days.
