I finally did it...

  1. ...I bought a Hybrid!!

    It's a Ford Escape, 2008, in light metallic ice blue. I'm in love!! :spin: I'm supposed to get 500 miles per tank (15 gallon tank), 30mpg/highway, 34mpg/city. (Hybrids get worse mileage on the highway because the gas engine works more on the highway.)

    It was REALLY hard to find this car--dealers usually only have 1-5, if they have any @ all.

    Now I'll have to keep track of my mileage and see if it's really better.
