Everyone needs to get over themselves. There are 7 BILLION people on this earth, everything you can imagine someone doing, it has been done. You/me/us are not that special.

Chalk, unless you want to tell me the manufacture of the super capacitor in my car was some horribly filthy process, I'll call bullsh*t.
Following the manual: -It uses 87, no E-85 allowed. It has been one-hell-of-a long time since less than 650 miles per 15 USgals of fuel. With 3 economy gauges, the one I reset at 5000 miles is still higher than 41MPG at 43000 miles. -It can go 10000 miles between oil changes, 5000 is recommended. -It doesn`t just run the engine to charge the capacitor, breaking/coasting also charge it. -If the engine is warm, cabin at climate control temp and the cap charged, the engine will not idle. - <=45MPH, it alternates partial gas, full electric, >45, it`s partial electric.
Like any other type, not all hybrids are equal. BMW has one 33MPG and Chrysler and GM each had units <20MPG (WHYTF?!!)
