  1. Gen2 Diesel General Discussion
    So, I've found only a couple articles on reasons diesel hybrids won't work (cost, similar power delivery, etc). But in my opinion, putting the two technologies together makes sense. 1. Cost is a valid reason but, see 2. 2. They say hybrid systems with gasoline work well because they have...
  2. Fuel Economy
    I have seen several statements about the possibility of a Cruze Hybrid. I currently have a 2012 Cruze ECO with manual transmission and get 42 to 50 MPG. In the near future I was thinking of replacing it, but want something that can equal the MPG I am getting. Therefore the Cruze Hybrid is a...

    I found this for sale on ebay. Does anyone know anything about it. Seems very cheap. Is it a scam? will it work? has a weird flange, but would be easy to modify to fit. Top rated seller. T3 T4 Hybrid turbocharger Kit T3 T4 Turbo 3AN Oil Feed Downpipe BOV Stage 1 | eBay

    Is a Cruze hybrid in the works?

    Looks like GM is releasing a bi-fuel Impala next summer that can run on either CNG or gasoline. I think this is a great idea. But does anyone know whether it will be the "good" Impala or the substandard "Impala Limited" that they make for fleet use? I would not buy the fleet version for...

    Hey there guys, I haven't posted in quite a while, but I thought I'd post here an perhaps get some insight. Im looking to get a new vehicle as I have recently moved out of California to the Seattle area, and was looking for something more fuel efficient than what im driving now (98 Taurus DOHC)...

    Ha, where is Cruze on this issue. One heck of a capacitor, 1,080 farads to be exact. When you take your foot off the gas, guess you have to do that in city traffic occasionally. The alternator output voltage increases to 25 volts putting an additional load on the engine for regenerative...

    Haven't heard a peep on this since about 2011 when they said it would be ready for 2014. I'm guessing that's been pushed back? I'd expect we'd be hearing a lot more about a 2014 plug-in Cruze at this point, otherwise. See: GM Exec Confirms 2014 Chevrolet Cruze Plug-In Hybrid Model

    Sure makes a lot more sense than hauling a ton of short life temperature batteries around, plus all the conversion electronics. "Peugeot-Citroën will build compact hybrids that run on a combination of gasoline and compressed air within the next three years, marking a potential for small cars...

    Most of the hybrids on the market do not touch the fuel economy of the Cruze Eco. It seems to make very little sense to me to even build one. The weight would go up a bunch for batteries, and the cost would also. And it is arguable that an electric car pollutes the environment as much or even...
