These guys have converted numerous Priuses (Pri-i?) from pure Hybrid to plug-in mode, allowing them to achieve 100+ MPG in daily driving.  The best part: they’re putting together a kit to help you do it, too!  There’s a lot of re-programming involved, so they’re hoping to provide you all the tough stuff so all you’ll need is some tools, time, a Prius, and a desire to shun gasoline like the plague.

We’ll bring you more information about this when we get back into the office, as I’d imagine a number of you’ll be interested in trying this yourselves.

    My folks have two Priuses (or whatever might be the plural form of Prius – Preii??), and my father’s a total electronics geek, so I have no doubt he would be interested in this when it came out, as long as it was affordable.

    This is not for everyone. It is 100+MPG for the first 20 to 30 mile every day if you plug in at night. (About 60 cents worth of electricity) That may not seem like much but most Americans only travel about 30 miles per day. I will be traveling 60 miles a day so I asked if I could plug in at work too. It is not a one size fits all solution, but it is a start. It is better for the environment and our national security.
