    Torque is very SEO oriented and writes articles about Prius regularly to boost web traffic... I always want to share them on Prius chat when I start reading them... But by the time I get to the end of the article, not so much, as most of the authors don't fact check beyond what someone tells them, and they often say uninformed things that PriusChat folks would complain about.

    Agree with your assessment of Torque. I typically scan their Prius related articles for any nuggets of value. This one in my OP is one out of 100 I've felt worthy of sharing. BTW, what's SEO?

    "Search Engine Optimization" = driving traffic to your website

    It's the type of website that produces tons of content but sucks at editorial oversight... Back in the day we used to call them content farms...

    Interestingly enough, I got an email on Saturday from some mob "[email protected]xyz" with the heading "Torque News". I've never heard of either before, and had never subscribed to either.

    I sent it immediately to <SPAM>.
