Just When You Thought That The Hummer Was A Guzzler

By Joe Thompson

You sure do love the way the Hummer vehicles go through various roads and road conditions without sweating a drop. You also do love the vehicle's muscles and all the power that they have in store. You also sure do love how easy it is to find those custom Hummer parts so maintaining the vehicle would not pose to be a problem.

But one of the very things you sure do not like about the Hummer is the fact that it sure does run and use up much too much gas and fuel. Yes, Hummer vehicles are very much known for their gas guzzling ways and the effect it has on your budget. Plus, you also are unsure of how much "dirt" and pollution the vehicle can share with the environment each time a Hummer drives by you.

However, it does look like times are really changing. When the world came out trying to find ways so as to augment the huge costs that driving could bring, out came fuel efficient vehicles and hybrid vehicles. And when the world was out purchasing hybrid vehicles, General Motors (the mother company that is responsible for the Hummer brand) has decided to make sure that the Hummer fits in the fad.

There is now a greener and really cleaner version of the Hummer H3, one of the vehicles under the mentioned brand. And yes, what makes this one quite special is that from being one of the major causes of holes in the pockets and also of pollution, the H3 was now transformed into a vehicle that runs on clean and inexpensive E85 bio fuel that is based on ethanol. They call this new one the Hummer H3 FlexFuel.

As per this new one, the Hummer H3 FlexFuel comes using the regular 5.3 liter V8 engine that is also used by the regular Hummer H3. It also makes use of a four wheel drive system. The difference though is that the engine of the Hummer H3 FlexFuel has been made to be cleaner and has been made to run on E85 fuel. This one has also got an even toned down interior and exterior so as to match its current environmental friendliness.
