I'd like to say it was because I'm "green", but I really needed a car in our stable that gets good mileage, and I'm a sucker for neato technology. I've had this car (Nissan Altima) for a little over a week, 411 miles, just reached half a tank. Still riding on the dealers fill up.
I wonder if there are any other hybrid owners out there. Looking for the good (and bad) stories.
