Fill Up 10 Times a Year!


Obviously lots of talk about gas in last couple of months. This talk has lead me to researching what my options are for a car with better gas mileage. A couple things that I have read over at EcoGeek have the value of Hybrids going up. The tried and true knock against the hybrid is the extra cost isn't recouped for 7 years or more. But the perfect storm of oil prices being way up and technology finally coming to market means that in as little as 2 years you could recoup the extra cost.

Basically battery technology is the main catalyst. Hymotion is releasing a battery next month that will allow the Prius to get 100 MPG. Yep 100 MPG. (details at EcoGeek) Do some quick math - The Prius has a 10 gallon tank, say you drive 10,000 miles a year that means you only fill your tank up 10 times in a year! Wrap your head around that! I fill up my tank at a minimum of 2 times a month. 24+ times a year.

Of course this battery cost a nice chunk of change $10,000. First to market products are always pricey, so this will price will come down.

One solution I have been studying is purchasing a used Prius and installing one of these batteries. While I was looking at some listings for a used Prius I was thinking how many of the odometer miles are engine miles and how many are electric miles. This question will be asked more and more in the coming years.

Anyways the convergence of this battery technology and high oil prices makes the hybrid a much more attractive solution.
