Easy Tiger!

You'll Impress them More by Saving Gas

We understand wanting to show off the vicious power of your silent new Prius, but you'll save even more fuel if you leave the racing to the professionals (who could stand to save some fuel themselves).

Avoid revving your engine, especially just before you switch your engine off, and quit it with those jackrabbit starts. Both keep your engine from operating at peak efficiency and needlessly waste fuel.

  • C'mon guys! You can do better than this. I read the term "jackrabbit starts" and it brought me back to 1978, which is the last time I heard it. That time was awful. The economy was crap, gas prices were on the rise, there was a/an (perceived) ineffective democratic president at the helm, we were still smarting from losing face in Vietnam. Sound familiar? Frankly, I'd personally love it if we had gas prices on par with Europe, but we need their plucky attitude as well. I'm not looking forward to another overcompensation rebound consumerist backlash when the economy finally picks back up.
