ALSO, GM started producing vehicles in '04 that have E-85 engines. This means that they are capable of running off of gas that contains 85% ethanol! So in an SUV that would normally get 200-230miles a tank could now get over 450 miles.
They are going to start marketing it later this year...
Ethanol stations aren't very plentiful yet and will take years to get into most markets (very few refineries are set to refine gas with the high ethanol percentages).
There is no comparison with the new hybrids and older ones. The new Prius is larger than the Camray, rides nicer and gets over 60% better MPG.
My Silverado gets 20 MPG highway, over 400 a tank.
