So, do hybrid drivers only need buy half a TerraPass, I wonder?

You have to ask? Why didn't you just fill in the boxes yoursef? OK, I just pretended I own a honda civic hybrid with automatic transmission and here are the results.

Your car emits 4,950 lbs of CO2 per year.
You should get a Hybrid Terrapass.


It costs you only $30 to make up for the CO2 emissions of your car whereas it costs me $50 to make up for the emissions of mine. (I estimated I only drive about 10k miles each year but I estimated you at 12k as you have a day job.)

I may have a day job, but it's about a 4 mile round trip. That's under 1,000 miles a year for the commute.
