    I was just driving around, almost minding my own business, after a really bad day when I saw a sign on the side of the road. End of summer vacation , free brake inspection. Now a really evil Prius driver with 35K on the car would drive in and announce that he/she had 35K on the car and never had the brakes checked or the pads replaced. You could then watch as the unknowing put the car up on a lift to measure the pad thickness. And gloat at their expressions. 98% how is that? I am bad then I got to thinking how could a Prius driver be really evil? Watch to see 4 big SUV's or pickups at a gas station and cruise around them in stealth as they filled up... look at the pumps and the gas sign and drive off with out running the ICE! Of course you could be shot ala "Easy Rider"? Any other thoughts on how to be bad?

    Tell me if this is evil....

    Driving on the freeway in the carpool lane (and the main freeway is stop and go)...seeing a brand new Prius without carpool lane stickers and giving a little honk and a wave as I go by....

    Tell me if this is evil. . .
    I complain to my coworkers when I carpool because my passenger wants the air conditioner on. This morning I was moaning and griping that she caused my mileage to drop to 61.9MPG after I had it up to 62.4MPG. They usually just walk away; as the price of gas goes up, I've begun following after them complaining louder.

    PASSENGERS?!

    My co-workers know no to ask...as the seagulls said in Finding Nemo ... "Mine,Mine,Mine,Mine,Mine,Mine,Mine,Mine,Mine,Mine,Mine,Mine,Mine..."

    local repair shop is advertising that if you get your oil changed and your gas mileage doesn't go up your next oil change is free. So I'm thinking I'll take you up on that and just drive it a little harder for one tank take it back and say "see it went down" ok here's the coupon for a free oil change. Then back to normal driving and get the mileage back to normal for the next 5000 miles. Now I'm thinking of just getting it down about 2 tenths just enough to give them a heart shock.

    Frank, are you crazy?! Don't drive it hard just for free oil. Wait a few weeks for the temperature to start turning South. Your mileage will naturally lower even if you try hard to keep it up. Use the natural weather patterns to your advantage. Shoot, you should be able to get away with that for at least four months.

    Have fun! :D

    and how to they prove it? it'd be really easy to just ride one tank in a little ahrder, get the free change, then work it back up the last half of the tank :lol:

    actually my normal route to work was under construction and I took my alternate for one week and it dropped my milage about 2 tenths of a mile per gallon (USG) so that would be really easy. Just take in my reciept for the last tank and the one for this tank and boom you owe me a free oil change. But Tony's idea of waiting for fall temps to drop it would work just as well.
