The more fuel your vehicle burns the more greenhouse gases it emits, and even a small, extremely fuel efficient vehicle will still emit several tons of greenhouse gases, namely carbon dioxide, nitrous oxide, and methane, in one year. According to www.fueleconomy.gov, in one year a 2004 VW Beetle with a 5-speed manual transmission will emit 7.2 tons; a 2004 Chevy Blazer automatic with 4WD will send out 11.5 tons, and a hybrid like a 2005 Toyota Prius will emit 3.5 tons of these gases.
In addition to greenhouse gas emissions, fueleconomy.gov has info about hybrid cars, gas mileage tips, air pollution ratings, and safety information for new and used cars.
