Ramblings from another nerd on the grid
I went green. Ok, not in the hybrid sense, but as in I'm saving lots of green. I traded my high testosterone, high horse power, high payment, premium gas, low miles per gallon Infiniti G35 Coupe for a Honda Civic.
Ok, pick yourself up off the floor. Before you tell me, as Charles has done, that I'm totally crazy, consider the following:
Oh well, I thought you might be interested in how I'm spending my vacation time. Spending money as usual. Well, not really spending. Besides, this will allow me to save some money for my next sports car... :)
Yeah, but everyone under the sun drives a Honda. Do you cave in to peer pressure every day? I bet you started smoking at 12, too, didn't you? You got married because 'it was the thing to do' right?
Yup, that definitely applies here. Isn't your car now just a Spree with four wheels?
Ha, just kidding....
I'm stick breaking it in so I don't yet know if I need my Nikees to help get on the freeway.
Benjamin, do you drive a V8 truck or what? :)
Now that we've thawed...49.6 MPG.
(I have to remind my wife when she complains about 36 MPG in the dead of winter that most people don't break 30 MPG.)
I love our Prius. Especially when I go slow enough to run entirely on electric in the neighborhood. Scares the teenagers walking in the middle of the road when the find a car <i>following</i> them.
LOL. Prius stalking... :)
