Train רכבת:

Starting from September 2018 there is a direct train line between the airport and Jerusalem's central bus station which is at the main entrance to the city.
Train runs every half hour and cost 17 shekel per ride. I think there is a discount if you buy round trip.

To get to the train: Leave the terminal through exit 01 and it is directly on your right. You can buy a ticket from the automatic machines outside the station entrance.
Please note that the train only runs during the day and not at night. Check the Israeli rail  website in advance if you are not sure.

Any hybrids in IL?  The gas always seems to cost more than the rental :(

I usually rent a Mazda 3. This past trip in Israel I got an upgrade to a Honda Civic and noticed a huge difference with how many miles I was making to the Gallon. It def pays to have a better car and save on Gas especially in Israel with those prices.

My question is not limited to TLV-Jlm, I'm saying, generally speaking, when renting a car in Israel (especially for a tourist, who's driving a lot around the country), the gas comes out so very expensive..
I guess this would apply to Europe too...

So is anyone familiar with e.g. a specific branch etc or dealer etc., where you can easily obtain a upgrade or for not much more $ to a Hybrid or solar whatever... ?

I can do it for you. The price is very reasonable on those cars.

That's nice, but you agents charge more than online.  I know you say that online doesn't include all the separate fees + insurance etc. However, I recently spoke to two different people, both unaffiliated with the other, and both rented from two separate rental companies and booked  from two different places online.  Both  rented for one day.  They both said, the fees did not add on that much money to their bill...
They both paid a lot more money in gas than for the actual rental!

Just rented a OW rentlal from jerusalem to TLV. Picked up at Thrifty @King David. No lines. Lady was extremely nice first she wanted to upgrade me to some car that found out it wasnt available and put me in a brand new mazda 3 with 150km. Drove around Jerusalem a little went to the airport and did not have to fill up with gas. They had a shuttle waiting to take me to the terminal. Best $25 spent here. BIG PROPS TO HOCKER FOR HOOKING ME UP!!!! Definitely recommended.

just to correct reb moshe shlita,
the bus to modi'in is 12.5 shekel plus 10 shekel on the train. so 22.5 shekel total. actual travel time is 45 minutes but that doesnt include time waiting for bus or train. the bus is veolis 110 and runs every half hour roughly. the train runs on the 3's and 42's usually, i.e. 1.03 1.42. 2.03. 2.42, etc..
