I've been hearing a lot in recent weeks about the "hype" of gasoline-electric hybrids.

People complain that consumers are being lured into paying a higher price for these fuel-efficient vehicles than they can possibly recoup during their ownership period.

But hybrids aren't the only vehicles being hyped -- all in the name of fuel economy.

Spc. Jeffrey Hamme and Staff Sgt. Michelangelo Merksamer of HHC, 1/506th Infantry, point out features of the Hybrid Electric Humvee at the AUSA Annual Meeting earlier this month. The two Soldiers participated in a Military Utility Assessment of the prototype vehicle last month at Fort Campbell, Ky.
