According to this article the demand for used fuel efficient cars is up as people in the US try to cut their fuel costs. Apparently prices of used hybrids and fuel efficient small cars have risen considerably within the last six months with cars that were cheaper last year no selling at a premium. The most fuel efficient vehicle currently on the market is the 2007 Toyota Prius hybrid and because Toyota have capped production of the 2008 model you would expect to pay 9% more or an extra for one of these. I wonder whether we will see something similar happening in the UK. I have been considering upgrading my very old G Reg (1990) Fiesta but when I realised just how many miles it does on one tank of fuel I thought I would hang onto it for a bit longer.
