Hello from Vancouver, Canada. I thought that any hybrid, electric, or flexible fuel vehicle owners from British Columbia might want to know that the provincial government here will give you a partial PST tax refund when you buy any of these vehicle types. Here's the link to the Ministry's form which you fill out...

This is the link to the bulletin explaining how to calculate your rebate.

I filled it out and sent it in with the necessary documents, and got my refund of about $1000. That's more than a year's worth of fuel for me!
