See now, that I can respect. just remember that I never purchased the Prius to save anything except money...for me. So me feeling like I "should take the Prius" instead of my Jeep is only because I hate to spend the extra money on gas, not because I feel like I'm killing more trees or something. There are a few of us sane Prius drivers out there NOT clogging up the passing lane doing 45MPH in a 65MPH zone trying to squeeze out 2 extra MPG!

I do confess though, that I have one complete tank in a Prius where I averaged 65.x MPG. I had to Work for it, took back roads all the time, avoided traffic, didn't piss off too many people. That was 5 years ago, now we just drive it and get 45ish on average, my wife driving 95% of the time.

Anyway, I'd much rather get 30 in my Jeep than 50 in the Prius, the Jeep is SO much more comfy it's not even close! I love my Jeep, my wife loves her Prius, and I tolerate them both.
