Now that gas prices are hovering at the 1.45cent\litre mark people have started to reconsider driving. It has effected everything from your grocery bill to travel costs. More and more people are staying home for vacations instead of going on road trips or hopping on to a plane.
Have you considered an alternative vehicle type like a Hybrid or electric vehicle? The Tesla Roadster is one the world’s only electric vehicle capable of accelerating from 0-60 mph in 3.5 seconds. That should satisfy the gear heads for performance.
I have been thinking a lot about creating a hybrid vehicle that runs on vegetable oil aka Frybrids. There are several companies offering the conversion kits, which will convert a diesel car to run on both vegetable oil and diesel. A 2000+ model VW Jetta is capable of running close to 1000km per diesel tank and add 900km on the frybrid system, that is some very good fuel economy.
For more information on electric alternatives I suggest visiting Vancouver Electric Vehicle Association
