Welcome to the Priushood

After letting the old van go with 230,000 miles last week, I needed a new car. I decided to be economical and responsible. I bought a 2011 Prius. The tank was full when I got it.

Prius HappyI drove 340 miles since, and today the gas level was approaching a quarter full. I decided to fill up.

This is all I could squeeze into the tank.

I feel like I am back in the 1990s when I could fill up my car for less than thirty dollars.

Then I drove to Los Angeles and back, about 250 miles roundtrip. Here is the result showing I got 57.1 MPG on average for that trip.


Now I am truly Prius Happy.

Or, as a friend said: Welcome to the Priushood.
