Wink More proof of a conspiracy

Apparently, the US-spec Prius doesn't get an electric-only mode every Asian or European gets..........

Apparently, it's because of "battery warranty" concerns...... right. I have some land in Florida that's for sale....... enjoy it at low tide.

Studies have shown that US denizens are too lazy to push any button that does not turn on the air conditioning, music, or dispense a food product,

Well, if a comercial tells you to push a button, that's different.

Other studies show that US citizens will do anything a comercial tells them too.

My brother (a honda-tech) has one of those on his tool box. The other techs spend all day running over there and hitting that. So I guess it works.
