  1. An impressive mileage is being targeted and achieved by more cars these days. Gas-powered cars are left no where behind, midst all the competition. A list of the worst fuel economic cars has also been listed at http://www.fueleconomy.gov . Now that the prices are shooting up, it is wise of the car makers to think more along these lines and give the users more efficient products. To borrow a line from Uno Car Dealers, “A car that’s well maintained and in a good condition is more likely to be sold off” . That page ( http://www.unocardealers.com/car-tips/preparing-your-car-for-a-sale.html ) is already giving me a second thought on things I should keep in mind to see that my car stays good enough when I think of selling it :) Speaking of the fuel. The sooner someone finds more cheaper and feasible alternatives, the luckier I shall consider myself!
