I know I'm going to love the car. With the numbers I was seeing today it may actually pay for itself before I get the loan paid off.

I think that's probably what I'll do. I just wanted to make sure that I wouldn't upset the balance that is required by the rules.

I was pretty amazed at the numbers. We traded a Honda Odyssey that go 24 MPG's it adds up quick and that was at $2.00 gallon.

Congratulations, that will be a lot of fun for you. There is that much more to pay attention to while you are hypermiling in a hybrid. Team slow burn is going to have some rediculously high mpg numbers soon...maybe not % above EPA, but the average MPG figure should be awesome.
