Uncle Doug’s Car

Posted on: October 23, 2007

A while back Uncle Doug sent me a note about the super cool conversion they did to his Prius to make it even better! He has a 55 mile commute each way each day and still was not happy about the gas mileage he was getting in the Prius. He stumbled upon a group in Boulder, CO who was converting Priuses and opted to go the plug-in PHEV route. After adding 1200 small Lithium-Ion batteries, the car now gets plugged in at night and at work during the day and averages 100 – 125 mpg over his 1.25 hour drive. Even with 2.5 hours of
drive time every day, he only has to visit a gas station every 8 or 9 days !!!
