Both are cars so its not that far fetched to compare them, its also
relevant as much as that if economy is the main reason for buying a
hybrid then there are better choices, if 44 yr old car can achieve that
sort of economy then the economy of a Prius is nothing to get excited about.

Then compare them to a Model T.


If the only thing you're interested in is economy, then you may have a
point.

If your answer is lower emissions then the 2 things are very much
related, the less fuel you burn the lower the emissions which is even
true in low tech older cars.

If you want a fairly LARGE car with a huge back seat that can
comfortably seat and transport four people, five if they're not large,
AND you want to get 48 US miles per US gallon, then you buy a Prius--and
you don't care what's under the hood.

If you drive only yourself, then you can get a smaller car, which
naturally costs less money--and again, you don't care what's under the
hood.

It's funny how people here are comparing strictly gas mileage with no
consideration of the car as a car.  Sure, you can get better gas mileage
if you buy a scooter, and there's no need for a hybrid there.  So?

Of course, most of the people here talking about how their smaller and
cheaper cars get good gas mileage are the types that would never have a
need for carrying others in the car with them, since they don't have any
friends to begin with.
