Does anyone know the gas mileage of the hummer? I've heard it wasn't that good.

From what I've found online the H1 gets 8-10 mpg while the new H2 tops that with a mighty 10-13 mpg. I'm sure that big boost is thanks to the killer aerodynamics. ;)

The article that I pulled those mpg's from referred to the Hummers as having the aerodynamics of a sea wall. :D That just cracked me up.

You've certainly not read anything at the Hummer Web site. There is no mention of fuel mileage that I can find.

In other words, if you have to ask ... don't bother.
The best I can find is 12 - 15 mpg for the diesels and 8 - 10 mpg for the gas engine models.

If you're buying gas anywhere in my neighborhood, you can count on spending a minimum of around $70 to fill an H2 up with gas. So let's see ... a really good :rolleyes: commute to work in Los Angeles is roughly 30 miles (that's 60 round trip.) That would mean, if I commuted to work in my Hummer, I'd spend roughly $13 per day on gas.

Super!

The Toyota Prius gets 52 city/45 town (48 average) mpg ... using our formula, it'd cost me $26 to fill the tank and $2.75 per day to commute. Not much more than public transportation and with less pollution.

For those that must have "bigger", Ford's new Escape Hybrid (SUV) is shooting for 35-40 mpg (that's about what my '87 Toyota gets) and will be available next summer.
