Today on Green Car Reports, we report on September's plug-in electric car sales, look back on the gasoline tax, augment the repair process, and warn women drivers about a new--and hitherto unknown--danger to their reproductive health. All this and more on Green Car Reports.

Plug-in electric car sales fell in September, after a remarkable and record-breaking August in which U.S. electric car sales exceeded 10,000 units for the first time ever.

Wish 'Happy Birthday!' to the current Federal gasoline tax of 18.4 cents per gallon; unlike the rest of us, it hasn't changed in 20 years.

Lots of electric-car drivers ask why they can't use their credit cards to pay for public charging stations. Now they can, courtesy of Recargo's Pay By Plugshare app.

The Volkswagen XL1 has some very cool repair techniques: Would you believe augmented reality?

We know more about the engines and transmissions in the next MINI Cooper, including a new three-cylinder engine option.

What's the most common body style and segment for a hybrid? It's the hybrid mid-size four-door sedan.

Women: Did you know that driving could hurt your ovaries? Nope, neither did we. Maybe just in Saudi Arabia.

Ever loaned out your car? We tell you who snoops, and who doesn't.
