Default Efficient Cars/Trucks For Small Biz

I found some interesting info on fueleconomy.gov about the most and least fuel-efficient vehicles in use. Not surprisingly, the Toyota Prius won overall mpg I think that if you use a vehicle to run your business, using a fuel-efficient vehicle would be a good way to save money (and the environment )

With the current cost fo fuel, I wish I could find a fuel efficient vehicel that can tow 9,000 pounds.

I have a turbo diesel that gets 15-17 mpg.

Check out the new Ford Transit Connect! Won't tow 9,000 pounds but its a great little delivery vehicle that gets decent mileage.

The problem with the Prius is you are paying for your fuel up-front in the original price of the vehicle. I would bet the Ford Fusion non-hybrid at 22/32 mpg is lower in overall cost of ownership than the Prius.
