Green Driving

  • Electric

    Electric

    Avoid gas stations altogether. Electricity is cheap and ubiquitous. EVs are the greenest vehicles you can buy. But limited range means mostly local driving.

  • Hybrid

    Hybrid

    Gas-electric hybrids are the most efficient cars that don’t have a plug. There are nearly 40 available models—ranging from compact to full-size SUV.

  • Diesel

    Diesel

    Diesel vehicles have exceptional fuel efficiency and are fun to drive. Today's diesels are much cleaner and quieter than those from previous generations.

  • High MPG Gas

    High MPG Gas

    Great fuel efficiency is possible with conventional gas engines. There's a growing list of reasonably priced models getting 35 mpg or higher.

  • CNG

    Natural Gas

    Research is required to find a local station that pumps CNG (Compressed Natural Gas), and choice of models is limited. But the payoff is low-cost fuel that burns clean.

  • Ethanol

    Ethanol

    If you live near an E85 pump, a flex-fuel car utilizes a domestic source of farm-grown fuel.

    Thanksgiving Road Trip: California in a Week

    A 7-Day California Expedition with the 2014 Audi Q5 TDI I was met with my mother’s raised eyebrows when I described our plans to spend “Friendsgiving” away from Georgia this year.

    eBay Collections: Japanese Icons by Jeff Glucker

    My first car was a 1987 Honda Prelude. It didn’t last long, but it was quickly followed by a 1985 Nissan 300ZX. I daily drive a 2000 Honda Civic Si, and I still think about my Z31 to this day. To say that Japanese cars hold a place in my heart is like saying Lennon […]
