    Yes, but how many equivalent miles per tank (pull) is that?

    What's the mpp? (miles per pull)

    Well here is some more information I gathered on my WeePri

    1 Pull back = 19 real inches or 58.83 WeePri feet.

    1 Pull back can let the WeePri travel about 22 real feet or 748 WeePri feet. ( there were bumps every 2 feet because of tiles so it could have gone further. Maybe. My car pulled a little to the right.)

    It took about 6 seconds for the WeePri to travel the 22 feet or 748 in WeePri feet. That translates to about an average of 85MPH WeePri or 2.5MPH real world.

    The PPM (Pulls Per Mile) would be about 7.66PPM in WeePri land or 258.61PPM real world. :eek:

    B)

    And yes I don't have a life. <_<

    Came back from vacation to find my Wee Pris waiting for me. Guess the wee drivers got tired of waiting for food and a tip and took off without leaving a mess in the babies. Thanks Rufaro for all the hard work, I really will enjoy my new toys. Of course the teenager only rolled his eyes at me - I think he's just jealous. Thanks so much.

    When I got home from work today, found my Wee-Prii in its little garage (my mailbox). It's beatiful. Jasper the cat thinks I got it for him. Hate to disappoint him but "Ruby Jr." is going to work with me tomorrow.

    thanks!

    The WeePrii drivers were caught speeding on their delivery to Connecticut.

    Fortunately, the 3 WeePrii are none worse for the wear.

    Names now being named...THESE are the people I need to hear from VIA EMAIL if he/she/they still want her/her/their WeePri(s): narussian (1 black), iluvmacs (1 red & 1 blue), prius23 (2 blacks), momfortheenvironment (2 blue), ray_moore (2 silver), and grimbasement (2 red).</span>.

    MANY apologies if you HAVE already emailed me...Hey, I reckon I been doin' pretty good, so far...but, please, EMAIL ME if your name is above!

    I am not setting a "drop dead" date for the above, but it's gonna have to be soon-ish. I can't afford to keep feeding the wee drivers...AND, as you can see, there are other potential adoptive parents waiting for babies!

    If your name is NOT above, AND you have not received an invoice (and believe you should have) AND you have not otherwise contacted me...you are not on the list...or maybe you are...but I can't read the itty bitty invoices brought by the WeePri drivers... so email me too, please! :huh:

    way, in mpp, from CA to CT... :eek:

    PS...to those of you who have payments pending within PayPal...it isn't that I don't trust you, but it is lots easier for me to wait until PayPal clears your payment and then gives me a nifty little "ship" button that generates the shipping label...sorry.... :(

    Ok, I lied. There IS a deadline now: THESE are the people I need to hear from VIA EMAIL if he/she/they still want her/her/their WeePri(s): narussian (1 black), iluvmacs (1 red & 1 blue), prius23 (2 blacks), momfortheenvironment (2 blue), ray_moore (2 silver), and grimbasement (2 red). If I do not receive an email from these individuals by the evening of Wednesday, August 9, the babies will be back in the market for adpotion.

    Please note, I have established an email account for contact regarding the WeePris: [email protected]. :D My (Rufaro's) PM is NOT ACTIVE. You can either use the email above for contact, or use the email me function in my profile. Too many communications were getting lost the other way. Additionally, whenever you contact me about these...PLEASE indicate both your real and virtual names!

    More cars coming by the end of the week...I think!

    Back soon-ish with more updates!

    Wee Prii made it to Tacoma before I did and one wee Ruby had many thousand miles on it before my plane arrived, :lol:

    DD, never a car toy person before, loves it, and her grampa is thinking about getting a big version of one.

    Thanks so much, for your considerable time and effort, and for your humor, reading your posts has been fun.

    I got my Wee Pris on Friday, just in time for my long weekend trip to visit family. My two grandsons love them. I gave the older one (Lagan, almost 5) the choice between a white one and a champagne one, and he chose the white one "because it's like Grandma Jeannie's car". He and my younger son (Uncle Jeff) raced them across the living room while Forrest napped.

    My white WeePri arrived at my workplace today and now sits on top of my monitor.
    Question: my white WeePri is a "metallic white"... could I have possibly received the silver instead?

    To quote, I believe it was Galaxee...GAH!

    I do believe it is not only possible, but entirely likely...

    New white on its way forthwith.

    Many grovelling apologies...

    My claim is that I got into the middle of one of the WeePri driver parties...Please enjoy the silver...and check for any stowed away teeny tiny drunks....

    Well, that's my excuse, and I am sticking to it!
