Not really, unless you have MIMA and can FAS, as far as I know.

No, he's got a prius

Anyway, darin and I are going to make a video of this in his metro at AMEC in a little under 2 weeks, so stay tuned for the "pulse and glide a non-hybrid" video

PS: It's actually 720p, but youtube is still rendering the video

Unfortunately, the camera battery died before we actually finished taping all the segments we wanted to get for this video.

So you didn't get to see the fuel economy display showing 85 mpg achieved in this P&G demo by Doc Willie.

Or our discussion of "Are there times when you wouldn't want to use P&G?" (Answer: yes, of course.)
