Fuel efficiency

Interesting fuel efficiency and CO2 output comparison between a
gasoline, hybrid, and diesel (not avail. in US) Honda Accord.

Comparing Accords: Diesel, Hybrid and Gasoline

After posting about the Honda clean diesel ad (earlier post), I
decided to do some quick  side-by-side comparisons using three models
of the Honda Accord: the Accord Diesel featuring the new, clean 2.2
i-CTDi engine touted in the ad (picture at right), the new Accord
Hybrid, and two gasoline sedans. The outcome: the Accord Diesel (using
petroleum diesel) offers the lowest fuel consumption and the lowest
CO2 emissions, even surpassing the Accord Hybrid.

In a sense, it’s not a fair comparison—the cars, even though they are
of the same model family, target different consumers with different
levels of performance and features. (Furthermore, the diesel isn’t
offered in the US.) Honda opted to create a performance hybrid with
its Accord, thereby somewhat reducing the fuel consumption and CO2
emissions benefits. Had the company implemented its IMA hybrid drive
with a smaller, more efficient gasoline engine, the results would be
much better.
