Last Thursday, the Wife & I became the proud owners of a 2006 Toyota Prius Hybrid. Currently our average Miles Per Gallon is at 41.9. A far cry from the EPA estimates of 60, but it keeps rising. I don’t think I’ll ever get it to 60, but as long as I’m in the 50s, I think I’ll be happy.
I’ve been looking at the Prius for several years. I think my first test drive of them was in 2002 or 2003, after I got home from my mission. The Prius was launched in Japan for model year 1997 and in the US for model year 2001.
