Eeyore II

So, the check engine light came on again last night.

I fumed and fretted all the way home. I was already extremely tired - Employee Services Fair - and I had been working both as tech on site and BBQ sort of coordinator.

I dropped the car off at the dealership this morning - got a comp rental on a brand new PRIUS.

Phone call from Roman - gas cap wasn't on correctly.

I always give the gas cap an extra twist to make sure it's on there good. But I didn't fill up the car last. I didn't even think about checking the cap. *sigh*

The PRIUS is extremely quiet. Just how many times do you have to push the power button in order for the car to at least get into reverse?

You have to push the brake as you push the P button to turn the engine on. No need for multiple pushes.

If the brake is not pushed, it's like turning on the ACC on a keyed car. 1st press is real basics like the radio, 2nd press gets you AC & Windows. 3rd press turns it off.


If the batteries are fully charged, it doesn't look or sound much different then 2nd push ACC.

Thank you!

Traffic was bad - but I used less than 1.3 gallons to get back and forth to work. Not bad =)

So, how did it drive? I've been thinking about it. Or maybe the Civic Hybrid. It'd be nice to save some $$ on gas.
