Following Tessla's comment on the 'City EL for sale thread'

Well I have a Mk1 or if you are a member of the prius geehad a Mk2. I have info on installing cruse control and workarounds for some of the little quirks. I would be bang up for a prius section.

109,000 miles and I'm still getting 62MPG, not bad for a car that should get 57MPG /Brag

It would be interesting to see how many Classic Prius' there are out there


Lets have a Poll of Hybrids.

What you got, how far has it gone, what mileage do you get.
Soft as Graphite, Hard as Diamond, Black as Coal & clear as CO2, It's a Carbon thing!

Hmmm............

I used to have an NHW20 (the 2005 Generation II Prius) but now have a ZVW30 (2010 Generation III). Unfortunately, there isn't an option to select the ZVW30 Prius in the register.

We have all moved on a bit I see. 8)

I have three MK1 Insights now, two converted to lithium power packs.
One 50 x 40ah Hipower prismatic cells one 50 x 20ah A123 pouch cells.

One of my cars has also done 240,000 miles which is not bad going.

MPG I'm not saying to avoid depressing everyone else. :wink:
