I hate hybrids PERIOD. They're a pill to work on, and 9 times out of 10 the parts will cost you an arm or a leg and if 1 little thing is even slightly off, it won't run. The worst part is that the friggin hybrid batteries are worth more than the vehicle is when it comes time to replace them. It's same old crap from the government. The preach to people trying them to get into hybrids, and yet they only use gas gusslers themselves. they're hypocritical unwashed nasty and butt ugly pigs. I call 50 polichickens at the bottom of the ocean a good start if you get my drift. The biggest part of this crap came from Obama (blah, gagging and puking my guts out). He's the one that started pushing this pile of crap onto the american public. Ron White is right when he says "You can't fix stupid". If that doesn't tell the story about Obama, nothing does.

I think we've got a bunch of idiots running this country that doesn't know a piston head from their sister's titties to be honest about it.

The government needs to stay the fuck out of this. They seem to forget that raising the MPG standards, is going to result in people using less fuel. Less fuel means oil prices are higher. These high MPG cars, aren't going to be cheap, so higher vehicle prices. But you won't need to fill up as much..which means less money coming in from the fuel taxes, which means less money for road maintenance. That is why they are already talking about taxing drivers for every mile they drive. Which is also fucking crazy.

Hybrids are a temporary thing. Short Term Solution to this MPG & emission thing is Diesel and hybrids. Long term, I truly believe Hydrogen and Propane/Natural Gas is the way to go Can fill up just like we do now, it burns clean, and they can have the same power output as a gas powered engine. Electric just isn't an option. Until batteries can last a good number of years and you can charge them up in 5 minutes or less, they will not be practical.

And a cool fun fact for the day: Ford's F-Series Super Duty's (250 and up) will have a Hybrid option for the gas and diesels starting in 2013. I think it could work there. They example they provided is Contractors and such who always have the vehicles running. It will knock it down to electric power when they are idling around or just running around the job site. Almost seems less like a Hybrid and more like an advanced start-stop system.
