    "Piano Notes"

    I recently came across your blog and have been reading along. I thought I would leave my first comment. I don't know what to say except that I have enjoyed reading. Nice blog. I will keep visiting this blog very often.

    "Sweet Ride"

    Took one for a short ride...just like a regular pickup only greener!!!! If you turn off the radio, you can barely hear a little hum from the electric motors. With the radio on, it wasn't even noticeable.
    It would seem that hybrids here make a lot more sense....small cars already get good mileage. It would hard to ever justify the premium for a Prius over a Corolla on an economic basis, but in full size pickups and SUVs the payback is probably a lot quicker.

    "Fun fact"

    Another fun fact is that a typical 2009 Chevrolet Silverado Hybrid will burn some 350 fewer gallons of gasoline per year than a pickup equipped with a mid-size V-8 engine and a six-speed automatic transmission.
    Thanks for pointing out the remarkable savings these trucks potentially can have. It seems to be lost on a few people that think the prius pwns all.
