I am selling my last gasoline car. I already sold my gas lawn tractor and replaced it with a battery electric lawnmower. The only gas motor vehicle I have left, (not including the range extender in my Volt) is a black Kawasaki Ninja 250.
The Ninja is a screamer, very reliable, powerful, and gets 75-80 MPG. I increased two notches on the final drive gear, so it drives like a bigger bike. Higher top speed, and more useable power. Well, I plan on selling the Ninja in spring 2014. Even though it gets 75-80 MPG, it is a gas guzzler compared to the Chevy Volt. It is going to hurt to sell the Ninja. I figure if I ever want another motorcycle, I will get a Zero EV motorcycle, or preferably a future eNinja. Now that would be awesome.
It hurts selling the Ninja, but it feels good going all electric.
BTW My lawnmower is a Black & Decker 36V cordless mower. Works awesome. This is the 3rd summer I have had it. No battery degradation yet. I am able to cut my lawn in 2 charges. When the grass is shorter I can do it all in one charge. I have a 1/2 acre lot, though there are a lot of landscape islands that have removed lawn. In fact my whole front is mostly landscape, only a strip of grass around it. My rear has a lot of grass though. I recommend going battery electric. I sold my lawn tractor to avoid gas. Now I am walking behind a mower and like it better. More room in my garage also. No gas container sitting in my garage either.
