10 Cars With MPG's As Good Or Better Than Hybrids

10-Highest Non-Hybrid MPG's


Hybrids are a big deal for most consumers; gas prices seem to always be on the rise, no matter what time of the year.  The combination of natural combustion and lithium power has opened doors to save money on fuel. Hybrids are known for their engine-battery ratio and good  MPG's.   However, the average hybrid runs $4-8,000.00 more then their naturally aspirated counterpart. So we have to ask ourselves, will that extra 4 grand pay off in gas savings over the lifespan of your vehicle???
