I think it's in this thread... but someone has commented about the number of IT people with PHEVs.

Says something about us, but no idea what.

That most of us are self-employed, directors of our own one (or two) man band companies and able to benefit to the absolute maximum from the various tax breaks that have been on offer for PHEVs?

That's a big factor in the UK (and describes my position precisely). I'm not so certain about other countries.

I assume you're using 'gas' to mean LPG, rather than the US English meaning of 'petrol'?

Yep, didn’t mean petrol :roll:

But not LPG either, we use can use pressurized natural gas for vehicles. Its around 200bar in vehicles reservoir. LPG is used in lift truck bbq grills and so.

At work we have three natural gas/petrol powered VW Caddys.

Interesting about so many IT people purchasing PHEVs! I know the technology of it made a big influence over my decision to buy one. I really enjoy that Mitsubishi made so many ways for the driver to be involved in the operation of the EV system. The paddle shifters, the buttons for charge/save/EV priority, etc. It's almost like having a manual transmission in a car - it makes it much more engaging and entertaining to drive! So many manufacturers of EVs and SUVs have tried to insulate the driver from so much of the operation of their vehicles they've essentially turned many potentially good cars into boring appliances.

1. Owner: two weeks
2. Model: GX3H Atlantic Grey early 2015
3. Non facelift (I think)
4. What attracted you to the car initially: I can stop poisoning kids with NOX, and help contain global warming. I would have preferred something physically smaller but the 3 year old Prius has too small an EV range. I chose not to go all EV and hire occasionally because I live in the sticks and hiring is not so easy as in the city.
5. Location - Essex, UK.
6. Occupation (plus what that means in real language)- Retired - means I can do what want provided it doesn't cost too much.
7. Experience of EV/REV/PHEV you have had before - My brother-in-law had a Renault Twizy as his only vehicle for 2 years, hiring when he needed, and that proved to me the viability of EV even with a limited range.
