Early in the throttle stop testing discussion thread, a Prius owner did try it and could not get it to work. Something about both the drive by wire throttle and the synergy drive power train, IIRC...

See my car's mod & maintenance thread and my electric bicycle's thread for ongoing projects. I will rebuild Black and Green over decades as parts die, until it becomes a different car of roughly the same shape and color. My minimum fuel economy goal is 55 mpg while averaging posted speed limits. I generally top 60 mpg. See also my Honda manual transmission specs thread.

Sure, if I were going to make some experience with a Prius drivetrain, my choice would be something compact, even though I was considering a sand-rail buggy. But anyway, the early Jeeps (up to the CJ-3B) would be an interesting base for such a project, even though I would consider a rear-engined approach similar to those "Veep" conversions or the Gurgel X-12.
