DuckBoy87-"I drive a 1994 Chevy Cavalier."

I had one of those (92 Chevy Cavalier Type 10)...loved that car. (Actually, my daugher was conceived in that car.)

Izaq-"WTF do you need a truck for when noone seems to be carrying any cargo?"

WTF does it matter what I 'need'. It's simply sufficient that I 'want' to drive a truck with a big V-8 (and a Jeep with a V-8 and no Catalytic Converter). Nor is any anyone else's business nor decision.

tommy2X4-"Shut your engines off."

You have no say-so in the matter. Foxtrot Oscar.

Don't like it? It's a free country and you're free to take your pius butt down the road to someplace that doesn't bug you.

Funny how Cheryl goes straight for the physical appearance put-downs. There is SO much that is wrong with this woman's behavior, her physical appearance is the LEAST of it. I love the guy's unruffled attitude. When someone it having a sh*t-fit & falling in it right in front of me, I get the CRAZY giggles. And laughing at them makes them SO much more angry. Hee, hee.

Should of told her to shove that piece of sh*t hybrid up her fat ass. People are too nice these days.

Meh. Whatever. Prius Owners are dicks.

Chances are she was driving a gas guzzling pos back in the 80's when the CRX was getting 40mpg. Why didn't she give a poo back then? I also doubt fumes were bothering her back then either.

Folks, that lady is the person one turns into when sex is no longer available.

next greencar, a site which is (obviously) specifically biased towards "green" cars, rate cars on a total environmental impact basis, based on pollution in manufacturing and in use.

So I looked at the numerous Prius models in their database. The "greenest" model scores a 35 in their rating.

I can't find a way to get more than 50 results per search. All of the top 50 diesels beat the Prius, along with an unknown number more (because I can't get more than 50 results). 30 petrol cars beat it and 9 draw with it.

All of the top 50 diesels (and an unknown number more) even beat it purely on mpg.

I'd be surprised if the Hummer didn't outlast the Prius in terms of lifetime of use - its massively over-engineered and under-stressed for use as a town-car, whereas the prius will be built to a low weight, and therefore finer tolerances and more subject to mechanical wear ~ I would have thought. (Not that I'm siding with the politically biased dust-to-dust, far from it).


Good point. 3.5 times the milage seems like rather a lot even then, but it's less unfair than I thought.

In any case a decent small diesel wins hands down over either tech - my Tdi saloon, bought for a pittance with 100,000 on the clock, now at 260,000 miles and rising ~ 60mpg easily on the motorway @ the legal limit - I'd like to know what a prius does on the motorway - I bet its not as good.


It's about 50mpg, for the mark 3 model (which is much better for extra-urban economy than earlier models).

I sincerely hope you end up in this situation, and that you do what you write you'd do. And that you record it and put it here. I'd laugh myself half to death. ^^

God I hate mean persons like that who think they are entitled to go and yell in peoples faces.

She's like "YOU ARE BEING SO dratING UN-COURTEOUS, FUUUUUUCK", but the courteous thing to do would have been to walk over and be like "Hi, how's it going? Do you mind turning off your truck, the fumes are blowing over here. Thanks man."

Aren't modern, low-sulfur diesel engines more efficient than gasoline engines? I have a buddy who had a 2000-something Ram 2500 4x4 with the turbodiesel that's nearly as fuel-efficient as my V6 Explorer sport 4x4 (a vehicle that's about half the size of his).

Perhaps the guy is a camping enthusiast and needs a diesel to tow. Maybe he drives a lot and wants the reliability of a diesel engine (he does say he's in marketing - don't they travel a lot). He mentions having a farm. Perhaps he uses the vehicle for that use, as well? Or maybe he just likes having a big truck? All are justified reasons for having a diesel truck.

Also, that woman was offended because he was idling his truck and the wind was blowing the fumes toward her. Therefore, since she was the one offended, it makes it her problem. She should have been the one to move HER vehicle.

I think she was mad because he interrupted her fantasy about Al Gore.

@izzaq - diesel engines are still more efficient than petrol, even after the greater density of the fuel is taken into account - by about 20%. Partly down the higher compression ratio, partly down to the improved operation of a diesel unit under partial loads.

There is no disputing that small particle diesel pollutants are a human health problem - and for that reason alone, an electric-petrol hybrid around town does make sense.

It's a well known fact that Prius drivers like the smell their own farts. As documented by South Park.

It's been shown several times before in different journals etc that modern day fuel efficient petrol and diesel cars are less carbon intensive overall then hybrids because a hybrid involves a lot of a global manufacturing process getting very specific parts from far away places in intensive mining techniques

From what I understand, Toyota Pious batteries are usually Nickel metal hydride. Mining and refining Nickel is a dirty and polluting process. The manufacture and lifetime operation of a priapus car creates twice the pollution that an ordinary small diesel car does in it's working life. The generation of the electricity to power/charge the thing contributes to this pollution. I would be far happier about the environmental effect of running a modern diesel than a hybrid. The shouty woman ought to do a bit of research: Her car may be clean where it is being used, but is probably poisoning some other poor souls somewhere else. The chances are that her car causes more pollution than the diesel truck. (self-righteous sow)
