hybridization day one

Filed under: prius — admin @ 8:43 pm

Driving the Prius for the first day reminds me of the old Othello slogan – “a minute to learn, a lifetime to master” — well, hopefully not THAT long but there is clearly a bit of artistry and skill required to keep the gasoline engine off and the mileage pegged at 99.9 … apparently the tricky bit is understanding how hard to press the pedal and push the electric engine alone, right until the battery gets too low and the ICE kicks in.  Sweltering temperatures and required always-on A/C don’t help.  But a smooth and quiet ride, and still better fuel efficiency than the old wagon (no slouch itself), make for a good start.
