    How much did you have to pay for charging? At the one place I know the price it is $2/hr, minimum $2. If you fully charged, 25 miles would cost nearly $.10/mile, much more expensive than gas.

    Do some McDonalds have Level 2 chargers? Certainly none listed around here on any charger finder website I know of.
    And does one need a ChargePoint, or other, account to use them or do you just park and plug in?

    I'm at Henry Ford medical center in Bloomfield hills Michigan where they have the same type of charging station as McDonald's, you just need to tell the valet that you're charging and it's limited to 2 hours maximum that you can charge, oh, yeah, it's also free electricity

    I Uber with a 2020 Prius prime. The 2020 was redesigned as a 5 passenger car. The rear center console now flips up. The '17 '18 and '19 do not qualify for Uber (ubereats, yes) and even if Lyft allows it, don't do it. If you get into an accident, you could be sued by the passengers for too many people in the car. The 3 earlier years only have 4 seatbelts, so therefore you can only take you +3. The 2020 is totally legitimate though. I have an LE and my passengers say there's enough room. And at 60 mpg or better (especially in the spring), why wouldn't you?

    Is there a way to charge the prime at a public charging station? Around by me (Suffolk county, Long Island) there’s 1 110 volt charger (it is free, but there’s only one around). Is there a way to charge the vehicle at a 220v charging station. Is there an adapter. Because my car is a week old, the battery gets about 22 miles so I use it in hybrid mode most of the time. With repeated charging at homec, will reach 30 miles. But the 220 chargers don’t fit on my car. Any ideas, links to adapters, etc?

    No adapter needed. L2 chargers use the same J1772 receptacle as the one found in the car.

    I've taken two Lyfts in Prius which helped me decide to buy, so I'm not sure about "Lyft wont allow Prius" especially now that Prime is rated for 5 total people (and that rear seat is quite comfy even for big people.

    No way I'd do Uber or Lyft. Only reason I could see is if you "just like meeting people" or something.
