OK. Now I am really mad. I just found out that hybrid car owners who got the old grandfathted plates can transfer them to a new vehicle, even if that vehicle is purchased after July 1. This is an outrage.

Bob,

[?] Isn't transferring the plates from our old vehicles what Virginia allows all car owners to do when they buy a replacement? [?]

It was my understanding that the text of the bill stated that the VEHICLE had to be registered before July 1 to get the new plates. This is a loophole.

I started noticing a whole lot of older priuses that had really recent CF (CX) plates. This explains it. The car dealers latched onto this loophole and were selling hundreds of old hybrids to people because the new ones had a wait list. A scam with us paying the price.

What a great convenience for they hybrid owners. That means they can still get a 330HP 2007 Lexus, and go SOV!

What I don't understand is why they left this nonsensical language in.

In order for your vehicle to qualify as clean fuel it must be exclusively powered by clean special fuel. Then they go on to say that gasoline powered hybrids are qualified???

MDC - check your facts. Hybrids have a dual source - that's why they call them hybrids. It's like saying an amphibian is a land creature. The answer is that it's only part of the story. Remember, not only does the hybrid use less fuel than comparable vehicles, but it uses the fuel more efficiently. Always.

NoSUV,
Check your English. "Exclusively" has a meaning. Are you going to argue that gasoline, is now a "clean special fuel?"

MDC - My hybrid uses a battery. What part of that don't you understand? Have you ANY idea what hybrid means? Try not to post your ignorance.

It doesn't run only on battery as you've admitted previously. What part of "exclusively" do you not get?

Hybrid: Something, such as a computer or power plant, having two kinds of components that produce the same or similar results.

A hybrid running on CNG and battery would be exclusively clean fuel.
A hybrid running on Gasoline and battery is not exclusively clean fuel.

Unless you are a fool, this is not complicated.
