A Cautious Man

My Electric Surges Free
I took delivery of my 2004 Prius this past weekend. I realize that I'm now part of a cult, complete with online gurus.
As I mentioned to my neighbor, while I tell myself that it's eminently practical for the type of drivng I do, it's also "cool". I haven't put much of a dent in the gas supply yet, so I don't know what my actual mileage is - I'll report back. In the meantime, the coolest part has been being able to push the "Start" button, and drive away silently before the gas engine gets going.
Way cooler than those guys in the new Beetles or Cooper Minis, imho.
