**Should I buy a hybrid?**
> We are looking for a new car and are considering a Toyota Prius (Hybrid). The problem is, that at the moment that car price is definitely the upper limit that we can afford, so we want to make sure that…
> 1. We make an investment that will keep it’s value in the future, as we will probably need to sell the car in seven years.
> 2. There will not be a better solution in the close future. In that case we would maybe buy a used car for now and in a few years get a newer technology car which is hopefully gas independent.
**How much do you save by inflating your tires?**
> Can you give me the formula for determining CO2 emissions for properly inflated tires per year vs. improperly inflated tires, as well as the cost savings?
> If a car’s tire is supposed to be 30 psi and it’s 27 psi, that’s a 10% reduction. How much extra Co2 is being emitted? How much $$ is it costing?
