NASCAR for Ecogeeks

Let's just say it: the Shell Eco-Marathon   -- the finals of which are this weekend in Nagaro, France -- is simply adorable. Competitors toodle up in cars that look like they're designed by the Pixar team and www.bsd-berlin.de compete with the cartoonish dream of getting great mileage.{mosimage}
 
That's right -- the only goal is to drive as far as possible using the least amount of energy.  
 
And this isn't just a biodiesel fiesta. Teams can use any conventionally available energy source, including petrol, diesel, propane, solar, electric, hydrogen or biomass. 
 
255 teams from 20 countries are revving up to buy viagra on the internet compete -- 163 are using gasoline, 21 are using diesel, 19 will use propane and the remaining 52 will use alternative materials. The results have been fairly astounding in the just try! cialis pfizer online past -- in 2003 a French team achieved fuel consumption of 10,705 miles per gallon.

50 mpg to 100 mpg in 2 Strokes - Scuderi Air-Hybrid

The Scuderi Group has recently gained a lot of publicity with its “Air-Hybrid” engine that can double the fuel effciency of a car and decrease toxic emissions by as much as 80%.

The engine is a 'hybrid' in that it extracts energy that is order 100 mg tramadol normally lost, stores that energy, and then reuses it. The energy that is normally lost is airpressure, and it is stored for only an extremely brief moment before being forced into a combustion cylinder. The increased air pressure in the combustion cylinder effectively super-charges the engine cycle. The fuel burns hotter and more fully, and the Air-Hybrid engine is able to use more of online pharmacy cialis arizona that energy.

The engine is remarkably simple and very efficient. We're looking forward to seeing these things in mass-market cars.

Great story on these things at AutoBlog, I found it via GizMag .

Free parking for hybrids

Just another should-you-go-hybrid? story from SmartMoney.com. As usual, the {mosimage}answer to the headline's question isn't in the text. Instead, they list seven ways that you can save cash by buying a hybrid car.

Seven ways in addition to buying less gas, that is.

Anyway, here's my favorite part:

"Several major cities — including Los Angeles, Salt Lake City and Albuquerque — offer free metered parking for hybrids. Other cities are considering similar measures. Free parking doesn't mean you can't be ticketed, however, so abide by the meter restrictions — no hogging that prime space all day in a two-hour spot. You'll also need to register your car. Albuquerque asks residents to legal pharmacy online register with the city's parking office, and place an identification sticker in the vehicle window.

"Hybrid owners can also save on parking permits. Baltimore is offering discounted passes at 15 of its parking garages. At the garage on St. Paul Street, for example, you'll pay only $100 for a monthly pass, compared with $185 for regular vehicles. That's a savings of 46%. In Westchester, N.Y., hybrid owners get free parking at two commuter lots. Passes normally cost $75."

And before you buy your hybrid to get free parking, check with your city's specific rules for this type of thing -- I read complaints on a Prius message forum that San Jose's law, for example, may require that you buy your hybrid car in San Jose to qualify.

That is a clever way to get more people behind passing that sort of bill, though -- suddenly you've got all of the greenies united with the car dealerships on cheap canadian pharmacy it.
 

Drive smarter

I have to drive a cross-country trip this summer from Colorado to upstate New York. Despite the fact that New York holds the we use it levitra discount prices coolest summer job in the world for me, I'm already wincing at the idea of slugging out the gas money for my three-day journey.{mosimage}
 
I've skimmed a couple of cheap generic viagra india articles on smarter driving, but finally the folks at Edmunds actually tested the tips and reported in on how they worked.  
 
A quick rundown of a few of the results:
 
1. Drive moderately, not aggressively. It can save you up to 37%.
2. Drive the speed limit. You'll save around 14%.
3. Set that cruise control. That will also save you around 14%.  
 
Basically, my dad is going to be very happy because I'm going to be driving like a little old man going to church on my way out to best quality cialis New York. But hey, if it means more money to spend in the Adirondacks, I'll set my cruise to 55 mph and make sure I have a few hundred books on tape at the ready.

A greener military?

Welcome to the military's first hybrid -- the Heavy Expanded Mobility Technical Truck (HEMTT). This electric hybrid is proving to increase gas mileage by about 20% from its former 3-4 miles to the gallon.{mosimage}
 
The hybrid version took the roaring engine down to the purr of a sedan, but costs of the upgrade are still unknown. The generator can produce up to 300 kilowatts of power -- enough to viagra buy uk 50mg power 50 homes for an indefinite amount of time. 
 
The vehicle is www.pereverges.cat from Oshkosh Truck, who has made nearly 20,000 HEMTTs, with around 2,500 in use in Iraq.
