Here's something I'm looking forward to, and it is going to be on sale next year. The car that can do 261 miles per single gallon. Now that is what I expect from a hybrid, not the nonsensical 40 to 50 mpg that the Toyota Prius does.

Full Story

The Prius is a hybrid vehicle "testing" electronic engines, so in the future, electronic cars will have better fuel economy than diesel since they wont use any fuel...

True for Europe but not in the US. I don't know the reasons, but cars have different engines here and even the most efficient diesels do not do better than 35mpg. I don't know if it is intentional, or some kind of regulations, but there is nothing in the USA that does better than 40mpg, except for the Prius.

That's because you only read EPA ratings. Check the road tests and the owners testimonies

LOL, you don't think I talk to the people around me? Plus diesels are not very common here, in fact no one that I know has one. But the gas powered cars in the US do worse than their European counterparts. I own a Toyota that does 18mpg. My friend's Ford Escort does 25mpg. Your average Toyota Celica with 1.6ltr engine does 28 to 35mpg. I once owned a Honda Civic that did 40mpg, but that is the best gas mileage of anyone I've ever spoken to. No one else around here has a car that does better than 35mpg, and my sister's hybrid Prius, averages about 45mpg. On the other hand similar cars, including gasoline powered cars, of my relatives in Europe do much better. So I'm basing my words on all the people I know and the cars they drive.

Electronic engines are well understood and have been for as long as petrol engines.

The limiting factor with electronic cars is battery related.
