    Couple additions on the hybrid front:

    FEH = Ford Explorer Hybrid
    HyCam = Hybrid Camry
    HyHi = Hybrid Highlander (or is is HiHy?)
    TCH = Toyota Camry Hybrid (see HyCam)

    HCH (Honda Civic Hybrid) was already mentioned.

    FAS = Forced Auto-Stop, term used by hypermilers for turning off a car at lights, etc. to simulate a full hybrid
    ICE = Internal Combustion Engine (any gas/petrol/diesel engine)
    LRR = Low Rolling Resistance (tires)

    I've seen OP here (Original Poster, for the thread in question) but not so much on other chat boards.
    And somehow we missed PC = PriusChat! (and PC'er for Prius Chatter/member)

    And for FHOP (Fred's House of Pancakes, the forum for off-topic threads):
    AGW = anthropogenic (human-caused) global warming
    GHG = green-house gases
    GWG = global warming gases

    If you're looking at televisions, it stands for Picture in Picture. :)

    I think you mean the little squares for the gas gauge, which are often referred to here as 'pips'.

    Thanks Prius.Chat but I am alredy member of mitoyotaprius.mforos.com in Spain and of course in Spanish.
    Just telling you that I am a very recent Prius owner, less than one month, but I am enjoying it as "a kid with new shoes", as we say in Spain.
    Best regards

    Does "pip" stand for profile ignition pickup?
