I hate Prius's and their drivers.
I don't remember anything. Well, I do, but it's really vague. Like I was on drugs the whole time.

Yes, sell it and get an electric or gas car. None of this flip flopping hybrid shit!

Petrol is more efficient than electricity for highway driving, but electricity is more efficient for city driving. A hybrid makes perfect sense if you're going to be doing a lot of both.

It usually uses both electric and gas power in conjunction (the ratio is all that varies).
I dub thee "Icarus" for choosing to follow the extremes of paths.

Yet a Prius would be just as efficient if it were solely powered by gas, according to Popular Mechanics magazine. Also who cares about efficiency when you have a near infinite amount of energy radiating from the sun?

It's been radiating an inconceivably large amount of energy for a long time now and it looks like its going to continue to do so.

It has radiated an inconceivably large amount of energy over the past five billion years and it looks like its going to continue to radiate more over the next few billion years.

Fixed for proper use of the term "energy". Also, "very large" and "near infinite" are not the same thing.

36 miles to the gallon? Not that great to be fair. Fuel economy has little to do with your car and a lot to do with how you drive it. That Prius will burn more fuel than a petrol guzzler if you drive it like a wanker. See the Top Gear fuel economy race for evidence.

They are good, but not cool, or not very fast either.
