Yeah, but in case you didn't catch it, I think this is a stupid idea.
The money saved on fuel is usually countered by the increased cost of the vehicle. Compare the Ford Focus with its hybrid version and look at just how little savings there is on fuel and how many years it takes for that savings to equal the increased price.
