Fuel efficient vehicles are called gas sippers. A gas sipper uses gas in the most economical manner without any waste. Price of fuel has risen to such heights that every one is looking for vehicles that would curb gas usage. And thus there has been an ever increasing demand for better fuel economy. Apart from rise in oil prices, another reason that is responsible for the introduction of green vehicles, is the growing concern to protect the environment.
Nowadays, we are surrounded by things that are "eco-friendly", starting from daily use items to machines, electronic goods and so on. Gas sippers are eco friendly vehicles that waste least amount of energy and cause minimum pollution. Presently, majority of cars on the road are fuel efficient. Manufacturers are constantly competing with each other, using advanced technologies, in order to capture the fuel efficient vehicle market. Scooters, mopeds and motorcycles are by nature gas sippers due to their small size and less consumption of power.
Car companies are making small cars apart from their regular full size cars as they fulfil two purposes. One, they occupy less space and thus are easy to handle. And secondly they reduce the consumption of fuel. Hence, car owners or drivers have developed a preference for small cars that have pulled down their fuel expenditure to a large extent. Further, drivers have realised that driving a gas sipper gives a comfortable, relaxing and less aggressive experience. Its power delivery is extremely smooth as a result of which driving is least tiring. Some of the more efficient vehicles in the market are as follows:
