Hybrid drivers quickly went from quirky to trendy as gas prices hit new highs. Not only do these vehicles save gas, but they’re stylish cars from major manufacturers that you know and trust.
The design of a hybrid car also contributes to fuel economy. The benefits of hybrid cars is that the engine is smaller and lighter than that of a conventional engine so hybrids requires less fuel to accelerate, idle or move up inclines.
Some hybrid vehicles also have an electric motor or battery backup to use in traffic when a kick of extra power is necessary. With that backup, the hybrid is as flexible in getting around traffic as a conventional engine.
To reward buyers for choose hybrid vehicles, the US Government awards tax credit. The amount of the credit ranges from $400 to over $3,000 based on government issued calculation tables.
These tables consider the fuel economy and potential energy conservation for each hybrid vehicle based on type and weight. The better the hybrid performs on these fuel saving ratings, the larger the tax credit for the buyer. It’s like getting free money to offset your car cost.
What’s hot in hybrids is the water conversion car. This type of hybrid runs on gas and water. While gas is the primary fuel, the water is used in a vaporization process to increase fuel efficiency.
That means more miles per gallon, which reduces gas consumption, which saves money. You’ll notice the smug expression on the face of hybrid drivers to glide past as you’re pumping more gas into your old car.
If you can’t dump the car you have for a hybrid, you might still be able to get the benefit of hybrid technology. It’s possible to get a water energy conversion kit attached to many vehicles.
If you’re a good weekend mechanic, then you might do it yourself. But you’re safer having it installed by a mechanic who also knows how to interface this conversion kit with the electrical and computer control systems of your car.
Unless it’s accurately installed, you won’t get the full benefit of water conversion and you might compromise another system in your car. Hydrogen conversion kits sell for under a hundred dollars up to thousands.
