Miscellaneous Musing by Judy @ 11:44 AM

Today on the way to work my Prius read 52.7 MPG average for the trip. 😀 I’ve had it for a week, and my gas gauge reads a bit less than 1/2 full. I’ve gone 293 miles.

If I’d driven the Outback exclusively this week without filling it, it would now be on fumes. And it has a larger tank.

I’ve driven the Outback a couple of times this week for short trips, but all of my commuting and most of my running-around has been in the Prius. The Outback now seems so… primitive. It uses keys and everything. So 90’s. But #1 son loves “his car” (as he refers to it now). I will drive it for commuting next week, as I need to keep it driven and in good shape until #1 son has his license.

I wasn’t sure that the Nav system would be that useful, but it’s already come in handy to find a location on a dark streen in an unfamiliar neighborhood in a part of town I don’t usually hang out in. The Nav “voice” guided me right to the door with no problem. I met a friend there, and she said did you have a hard time finding this place? hmmm… not really. 😆

Oh yeah… I’m lovin’ it!
