But why would you specifically want 48mpg and not care how much it costs you
to get it?!!?
Is this some bizarre theoretical situation where you only have a set amount
of petrol and have to travel a certain distance or something? (and you're
not allowed to use a diesel?)
Surely people just care about how many cents per kilometre a car costs them
throughout it's ownership.
...err... normal people that is.

Think cock-stretching. Think bragging rights at the spoon collecting
Prius owners don't seem to be all that normal to me.

You TRULY Show your stupidity and bias at every turn. Any normal person
would simply accept that we all choose what we want for whatever reason we
Ive driven both Corolla and Prius and there is NO comparison in internal
space OR driving performance. Prius wins hands down. CVT is magic. Never a
gear change bump to deal with. As for US gallons versus Imperial ones,
Imperial gallons are bigger so you can up any US mpg figures accordingly.
Add the HUGE fact that traffic jam conditions just make the Prius even
better for economy and the climate as it switches the petrol engine off
while everyone else is clogging up the atmosphere with their crap...BINGO.

You're probably one of the worst for that with your antagonistic and abusive
responses to anyone *you* think doesn't like a Prius for whatever reason.
Cue your foul language and abusive response...

Cost is always a factor.
It's not that "I want 48mpg". It's that "I want 48mpg with the ability
to carry four to five people in great comfort, with amenities like
climate control and a great stereo, on a platform that won't break down
and leave me stranded on a regular basis," etc, etc.
Those of you who are looking ONLY at gas mileage are fuckwits who are
looking for nothing more than to cause arguments.
Of course, it was Toyota who designed the car and who is laughing all
the way to the bank with the profits. You guys, on the other hand,
don't contribute anything to society and couldn't invent running water
after seeing a waterfall.
