E-Battery at Home
A dash display example of
"Hypermiling" in a 2001 Toyota Prius
This over 44 mile drive included slow speed back country road driving in
Perry County and rural highway at speeds back to Lancaster at up to 50
Average fuel mileage
The country road driving featured careful
use of the accelerator since the terrain was very hilly. The
electric motor was used extensively. It seems getting this kind of
mileage would be nearly impossible without hybrid technology.
Using the electric motor too much can cause a temporary reduction in
fuel mileage since the engine insists on recharging the batteries when
the batteries reach a certain level as indicated on the display
(50%). Battery power is also recovered quickly by using the brakes
and even while coasting.
Drive was October
30, 2005 Purpose- View fall scenery
