    When i was in grade school i remember i once read some random fact that said a US F-15 aircraft had something like 25,000 miles of electrical wiring in it, enough to circle the world and then some.

    Anybody have an idea as to how much wiring a Prius might have? I don't presume nearly that much, but a curious thought none the less...

    I could tell you but there are 2 problems.
    1/ cant be bothered converting to feet or miles and I only know in metres and,
    2/ If I told you I would have to kill you. :censored:
    3/ I put this here because saying "2 things" and putting 3 seems to be the fashion.

    DH once had to check all even remotely accessible, non-trivial wiring in a prius. it took him and a colleague the better part of several days.

    I sent my wife out to measure the wire in our 06' three months ago and she isn't back yet.

    There are two things I don't like about Pat's reply:
    1) There are too many answers.
