it does have some daily driven battle scars including a "stitched" up rear bumper from when the EX was driving it.

I suck at photo taking

way way ahead of you

Dont worry, I will post more info and results when things get rolling but I can say that there are quite a few different possibilities for engine combinations worth exploring. Its kind of a off-the-clock thing right now but I think there will be much more interest in eco-performance soon.

Yoink! That's seriously impressive.

All I ever seem to do in this thread is pop in and congratulate you on smashing your previous best MPG. I should just make a bot...

Agreed on the bandwagon comment.

And looking forward to seeing what kind of uber-sipper slinks out of the full race skunkworks.

EDIT: you have to change your sig... "60 mpg or die" is outdated.

I'm ordering the parts for my MPGuino tomorrow, should help

I just got a little anxious and didnt want to wait another two weeks to fill up. So sue me, lol. I definitely squeeze every last drop out of city pulse and gliding with EOC. My new LLR tires have also made a huge difference in glide time.

I am very confident 70's are very possible, and even more so with the tricks i still have up my sleeve.

Going a little off topic here is a article that made me laugh

Prius race is a gas

I've done the same thing before - though in my case the great numbers I was seeing on the ScanGauge were what prompted me to do a small fill. Wanted to see if it was for real. (And I always fill to the brim - yes I know about the potential risk to the evap system. It's still working.)

I wonder if Daox is feeling a little competitive...

lol, I am competitive, but high 60s are a bit out of my reach currently.

It really is great to see someone pushing the HX. I've seen a bunch of drivers who really don't push for high mileage and are content with their low-mid 40s that they get from driving it normally. Its quite disappointing considering the potential of the vehicle.
