Do the new gas-only cars really compete with hybrids in MPG? Not really but they do put the "clean" diesels to shame.
Article for the link I posted did not even mention diesels.
Consumers disagree with your statement as they are increasingly choosing diesel and manufacturers are offering more diesel models.

This is a cool little tool:
Hybrid Compare Tool
Hybrids Can Save You Money
Based on MSRP and fuel costs alone, hybrid vehicles can save you money versus a comparably equipped conventional vehicle. Select a hybrid model below and adjust the sliders to see the fuel cost savings and payback period based on your fuel prices, annual miles, and percent city/highway driving mix.

#627 of 627 Timing belt or chain?
Jan 10, 2013 (4:50 pm)
My wife drives a 2005 Honda Civic Hybrid with an automatic transmission and a 1.3L engine. Does this car have a timing belt that has to be changed at around 100,000 miles, or a timing chain that's good for the life of the car? I wouldn't ask, except for the fact that she's coming up on 100,000 soon.
