I assume that you are referring to the Prius. Yes, I got it back on Saturday. The body shop did a great job. I even got a new wheel because the old one was scratched up. They left the old one in the trunk so that one will get cleaned up and go on ebay. I got an alignment check also. It was in spec.
Metro, the name "Silk Shorts" is derived from a private joke and I will not get into the details. Since the miles in the gaslog represent about 50% of me driving at 65-70 mpg and 50% of my wife driving at 45ish MPG, and about 10,000 missing miles of data, I will be renaming and restarting. I am still trying to come up with a good name.
Today will be a good day for getting baseline data. Winds will be light and variable and roads will be dry. Morning temp 30-35, evening temp 55-60F. I will either start a new thread on the Prius testing or just lump it in on the daily update thread.
The VX made it back safetly to it's new PA home. Long round trip (940miles), but worth it. It turned some great mileage on the highway, particularly when drafting trucks . The chaser vehicle needed fuel a little over 200 miles after picking up the VX so I topped it back off and calculated 67mpg. Around town and the commute to work today was not that great, but will be after some practice. Awesome having the the SuperMID to show the pulse width and instant mpg. Definately a very beneficial tool. Thanks again Dan, It will be well taken care of.
I was happy with that! That was just the first leg of the trip back. I definately did not hold that for the later half of the trip. There was some nasty traffic around the DC beltway and then all the way back through Philadelphia.
By the way, what was the multiplier for km/l to mpg?
