Hybrid Gas Mileage
http://MPGomatic.com tackles the topic of hybrid gas mileage. After thousands of miles of real world testing in hybrid cars and SUVs from all the major manufacturers, we have a pretty good handle on whether or not hybrid gas mileage is all it's cracked up to be ... Do the fuel economy claims and MPGs hold up to the hype? Full article: http://www.mpgomatic.com/2009/12/28/2010-hybrid-gas-mileage/
Buy a Cheap Car from Uncle Sam? Government Auto Auctions (GSA) - Pt I
Looking for a well-maintained low-mile used car at a low price? Maybe something that Fox Mulder or Dana Scully drove in an episode of the X-Files? Your prayers have been answered! The US government unloads over 40000 vehicles per year at the GSA Auto Auctions. You can find all kinds of stuff, from police sedans like Chevy Impalas, Dodge Chargers and Ford Crown Vics, through big SUVs like the Explorers (Scully's current ride) and Tahoes. There are plenty of Malibus, Focus, and Minivans. Loads of pickup trucks from the half-tons (Ford F-150s and Rangers, Chevy Silverados, Dodge Rams and Dakotas) through the heavy-duty stuff. And yeah, lots of big trucks and buses. Uncle Sam has something cheap for everyone! GSA Auctions are held at dozens of locations across America on a monthly basis. These auctions are open to the general public. Anyone can bid. You can find a good deal on a late model government owned used car, many with low mileage. They’re not exciting vehicles, for the most part, although I have seen stuff like Hummers and Mustangs. Prices are pretty good. As a rough estimate, you can figure on the vehicles going for dealer trade-in price. There are caveats, but overall GSA Auctions are one of the best places to buy a cheap car, truck or SUV. The GSA auction events also include odds and ends, but they’re not usually the place where you’ll see expensive and exotic luxury cars, seized from their owners - so, no Lamborghinis, Ferraris, or Bentleys - that’s a topic for a whole ‘nother video.
