Hello all! First time Prius owner here. Slowly moving my family from BMW to the Toyota Family. I, dad, am the first one to make the jump from a 7 Series to a sharp '11 Blizzard Pearl 5. My wife drives an X5 and she is scared silly over all of the Prius technology. My response - 18mpg verses 40+mpg baby - we're going to learn this car together! Gonna love the monthly gas budget change I'm sure. We just took the jump two days ago and really didn't do much research at all to ready ourselves for a Hybrid except for conversations with business friends who have raved about their Prius mobiles. Saw the car, drove it, liked the projected mpg and tech package, bought it. Goodbye 7 hello Prius! Here a question for you: How long of a learning curve time did it take you to move from the conventional gas powered mentality to the hybrid way of doing car miles? Been reading the forum here and liking what I'm seeing but obviously a newbie. Thanks for any responses!
