I heard rumor Dodge is coming out with a Hybrid version of its Cummins Turbo Diesel pickups. Anyone heard likewise?

I would really dig a dually with CF/CX plates.

That's a very cool truck. 2mpg more fuel efficiency isn't much of a selling point though.

It is hurricane season though and I really enjoyed having a generator after Isabelle did her deed.

Of course, they don't say whether it qualifies for the GWB tax credit either.

I get about 20 MPG in my diesel non-hybrid. To get 2 more MPG and have a generator, and get a hybrid exemption - that would rock.

Yep, all the better if using http://www.biodiesel.org/resources/biodiesel_basics/default.shtm

Of course, Consumer Reports gave the Dodge Ram a really bad all around rating.

I don't know about COnsumer Reports, even though I suscribe - I swear they are a Japanese owned company as the only cars they give a decent rating are Japanese. I currently have 90K, and other than fluid and filter changes, I had the fuel pump go out at 25K, and it was covered by Cummings' 100K engine warranty. A friend has 275K on his Dodge Diesel.

Now you've got me thinking this is not such a bad thing...biodiesel, Dodge Ram, with generator to power your house (and A/C)....hmmmm

NoSB,
Diesel is the way to go. Adolf Hitler made bio-diesel a reality in WWII. I'd convert my acre lawn to soybeans in a minute if I thought it would help break foreign dependance.
