ASIAN AUTO AmBank – Fuel Efficiency Awards 2011 Winners List

Pic 1

I attended this dinner just a night before my Honda Insight media trip, and it was timely indeed since both correlates fuel efficiency and cost savings.

Naturally after 2 events similarly themed events, I’m somewhat better educated when it comes to fuel savings. Driving habits aside, the make of the vehicle/engine does play a role.
I’m personally excited about hybrids now, thanks to Honda for the insightful trip but no fret if hybrids are not your thing, here’s a list of four-wheels that are kind to your wallet, the environment & stylish to boot!  XD
