Sat, May 10, Houston Hybrid and Hypermilers Club

Houston Hybrid & Hypermilers Club (aka HC)

Basic discussions about hybrids and techniques to maximize fuel efficiency (both hybrid and non-hybrid).

Sat, May 10th @ Noon
La Salsa Restaurant, Cypress Texas (Houston Cy-Fair)
15202 Mason Rd (Northwest Houston Metro Area)


I'll either get some fliers up on the table I'm at, or try to get the banquet hall in the back of the restaurant.

La Salsa is just inside the Fairfield subdivision. Mason road is after Mueschke if on 290 westbound and after Bauer if on 290 eastbound.

Agenda
-General Hybrid discussions over lunch
-Driving Clinics

Hybrids:
-2007 Toyota Prius with EBH and Factory EVb
-2006 Ford Escape Hybrid.

There are a few other places to eat if you want some other food.

I'll have my ScanGauge (fuel consumption display) so we can hook it up to your car to see real-time fuel usage. It works on most cars made after 1995. One thing that helps is knowing your engine size (displacement). This is usually represented in liters, cubic centimeters or cubic inches. An example would be a Mustang 5.0L V8.

I've created a new domain for the group called 106mpg.com.
David has also created HoustonHybridsClub.com
