It’s been over a year now that I have driven a Prius, and I am loving it. Being a Toyota, nothing ever goes wrong. It just works. I change the oil every 5000 miles and I put in gas when it needs it. My tank does not hold more than thirty dollar’s worth, and it lasts for almost 500 miles, depending on where I go and how I drive.
It is the most rewarding in traffic jams. Braking charges the battery, and when I stand, the engine is completely off. No emissions, no fuel burns. Stop and go, or in parking lots, the engine never really kicks on, so I just drive on electric. It feels good, not just because it helps protect the environment, but because every second my engine doesn’t run while I don’t need it I am not buying gas.
