Mike the Honda Accord Hybrid was not buit or sold to save money. It is a performance machine.

People average about 29MPG in the Accord Hybrid

While the non-hybrid gets around 25MPG:

Although the hybrid offers considerably more performance I personally wouldn't pay the difference in spite of its better economy.
