You are making the assumption that I'm liberal. You could be mistaken. It actually depends on the subject. If you want to take a shot at knocking me off a bike, then have at it. We'll cross that bridge when you actually get the nerve to do it. If you knock enough riders off the road, then you'll eventually get to me. The problem for you is that you'll be too tied up in paperwork to think about me.

Amen bro diesels are hybrid KILLERS.

I drive an E320 CDI (Mercedes). Its a REAL CAR that will spank a Prius in every aspect especially long highway rolls.

Whats really awful now is the fuel tax elimination on gas, but not diesel.

"Now we need a $100.00 bicycle tax and a $200 spandex tax."

Chuckle. Cycling is the new Godwin's Law...

"Libaral [sic] on a bycycle [sic] is not always a bad thing. Traffic weeds out some of the Obama voters for us."

Why does the thought of riding a bicycle turn internet tough guys into -- what's the epithet du jour -- bedwetters? I mean, really, are you that big of a sissy?

I agree , and nice choice of a well eng machine you made.

Yes the liberals seen that the smart folk would be heading to diesels and they need more funding for their VOLT so they seen a chance to raise the price of diesel on Farmers and OTR drivers and YOU AND ME .

My new RULE = NEVER ever ever ever listen to a Liberal moonbat again.

Nothing. Just shake your head , smile and discount ANYTHING a MOONBAT LIBERAL says

The mower you attached is a neat looking idea .

NOT WORTH IT.

You can buy a equivilent Gas or diesel and be money ahead or about the same. or two cheap omowers and throw the first one away .

The best way to save the enviroment , your rights and your paycheck is to get 5 PEOPLE to vote any and every liberal moonbat out of office they can from the local school board to the dog catcher.

ALL LIBERAL MOONBAT pilticians MUST go to save AMERICA

Please do it for our children and grandchildren

Ok, so you don't like the hybrid mower .. surely you can't argue that this is a great idea - I mean, it's solar powered and all. You've got to like this, yes?

What about motorcycles? They got hybrid like mileage.
In reality, these hybrids get only around 42-45 mpg lifetime avg. There are new non hybrid cars that comes close. Tax seems unfair to me.

If these so called environmentalists would do the math on hybrids, they would realize that on a cost per mile basis and environmental cost per mile basis, a diesel powered car is a much better alternative to a hybrid. But, being liberals for the most part, they have no understanding of basic math.

If you ask a hybrid owner "What's it a hybrid between?" they will probably give a blank stare. Its a HYBRID between a gasoline and electic car.

Its still a gasoline car unless its a plug-in then its a gasoline car that supplements with coal, natural gas, or nuclear fuel.

The hybrids are not the best solution for all. If you drive a lot of highway, you are lugging a lot of weight around in batteries and electric motors that offer little benefit.

If you do a lot of stop-and-go, hybrid helps.

I think a lot of people mindlessly buy hybrids to make a "statement." Look at me, I'm good for the planet driving around in my car. My poop does not stink.

We bought a hybrid , didn't care what anybody thought, besides I look like a complete goon it in..ugliest one made , I dont care , 50 miles roundrip a day 5 6 days a week. Heck I even let a moonbat liberal frind choose it and all I did was go pick it up.

Useless car , not a quality issue ONE , built fine. Just not worht the money , too small and money ahead if I bought a diesel and dragging it through 6" of snow with the truck that I can drive a 500 hp cadilac through and never spin a wheel .Oh , and you CANNOT see out of the thing except forawrd. blind spots are AWFULL

live and learn .

Yes they do , but they degrade from day one and anything over 15 years old... if you havent knocked the bricks out of the catty its burning extra fuel anyway from the restriction and less effective on immisions..

Clean diesel .... thats where it at .

You dont even have to rod out the new catys anymore , they are built SO CHEAP and brittle ( but expensive because of the precious metals )

One nice BAMMM with a rubber mallet, hold her wide open for a mile.= gain up to 12-20 hp and 3- 5 mpg.

I seen a guy do it on a new Audi one time, reporgram the computer and off they go .

I almost passed out when he started beating, it was like a 50K car a few yars back and he is under wailing like a crazy man.

Stubborn American people , clean diesel is hwere its at.
