Saving the Environment Saves Me Money!

26 Aug

Sometimes all the stars align and this happens:

Oh yeah, baby!  That’s 58.5 miles per gallon! With my 10 gallon tank, that means I can go 585 miles before I have to stop to get gas.  Just as a reference, from Washington, DC to Pittsburgh, PA is 245 miles (per Google Maps), so I could go the whole way home and the whole way back again without having to stop to fill up.    Princess Wendy Prius is a most excellent traveling companion.

Mostly I get around 50 or 51mpg in the city and 47 or 48mpg on road trips, but for some reason on this particular journey my mileage rocked!  Now, if only I could get someone to dust Wendy’s insides…   })i({

    Lol, I hope so! John named her Wendy because I used to eat out a lot for lunch (thank goodness I don’t anymore!) & he said poor Princess smelled like french fries from Wendy’s… =)
