so obviously... fuels going to be more expensive..

yeah man i agree
i'm impressed by honda
they've started to make Hybrid engines..
alot of car companies should do that... recharge the battery while the engines not moving the wheels.. and use both the engine and the battery to move the wheels...
thats the basic concept right?

I've only been on the road for 6 months now, and well when I started with my car, it used to cost around 40 to fill up, and that was when the prices was around 87p per litre. Now, it's almost 1 per litre and it costs nearly 55 to fill up!

Damn, I wish we paid $1.29 over here for a litre.... It's more like $1.80 for a litre
