    Hi everyone
    New to the community and the EV HV cars ,
    I used to be the guy with the V8 revving up next to the EV cars , not knowing that the EV drivers
    We're actually making fun of me , lol

    I have to say , I love this car it was hard letting my 650hp Pontiac GTO go , but 12 mpg wasn't cutting it , and two of my riding partners diying on motorcycle accidents , it was time for me to Let go my of the GTO and my R1 , hard decision
    But one of the best , I trade in my R1 and 4K
    For this 2012 PIP with only 8,600 miles
    It was my friends car , he never drove the car , always commute in the motorcycle ,
    That's how I got this car ,

    First week tracking miles , 240 miles
    130 miles EV and 110 gas , MPG average 130 to 140 ,
    Love the gas savings ,
    Best decision ever ,

    Welcome to Prius Chat!

    Should you miss the gauges and info of your 'youth' I can recommend a Scangauge II. While it can display any 4 of over a100 gauges, I do RPM, instantaneous MPG, engine water temperature, and intake air temperature. Others follow the electricity more, but I miss the old gauges.

    ScanGauge II ODB Scan Tool + Digital Gauges + Trip Computers - PriusChat Shop

    Finding new gauges seems to be a hobby here and we all benefit.

    Congrats on your purchase and "Welcome to Prius Chat"! (y)

    I too used to ride. Finally had to give it up as the knees went out from standing on concrete for years in front of machines running in machine shops.

    Enjoy that PIP you have there.
