What are you driving now and what was your previous car?

A Silver '07 Recycled "Mony" Prius with an "EV" Switch, ScanGauge & Hymotion L5 Pack with an Engine "Kill" switch. So, I can almost get unlimited MPG's or less than 1.0 L/100Km. Mony has added an Engine "Kill" switch which prevents the engine from starting until I re-start the Prius. This gives me the option to drive about 30 km around town in total EV or Electric-Only mode. Now, my wife is driving better electrically in a 2012 Nissan LEAF and rather than standing in the cold, wind pumping $300 worth of gas every month, we're now plugging in at home for 11 seconds each night and morning and using hardly $30 worth of electrons in a month of absolutely silent driving. And, I have treated myself to the best Electric Car on the planet. No more gas stops at any Gas Station for the rest of our natural lives.

How and why did you get interested in this new, clean, efficient Hybrid or Electric technology.

When I was 18, I designed an electric car with my engineer-Dad. Of course, we didn't have Li Batteries then. However, this Hybrid technology is the best of both worlds and makes a "no-compromise" car. And upgrading it to a Plug-In puts it over the top -- Utopia! After driving mostly on Electric for the past two years, I am totally spoiled with the luxury of driving electrically. I don't miss standing out in the cold and rain at a smelly gas station, pumping gas every week and having to pay almost a hundred dollars every time. Now, all that I have to do is take 11 seconds to plug in my car every night in the privacy of my own garage. And every single morning, I am rewarded with a Full Tank of Electrons ... for less than 50 cents a night!! I think that driving a "recycled" Prius is the epitome of environmental awareness.

How many Hybrid or Electric Km have you driven and what is your average Fuel or Electron efficiency?

Average was 3.9 L/100Km. before my plug-in came along. Now, with a used Hymotion pack, I'm averaging 1.1 L/100Km (not a typo!) or 250 MPG. My best tank mileage was 1155 Km @ 3.6. And, I saved the environment tons of CO2 and NOx and saved some $55,000 on gas over my 12-year span with these Prius Hybrids. I love my 300 MPG !!

Introduction

After driving several Prius' over a dozen years with some 500,000 "Klean", quiet Km, I've now upgraded to two All Electric Cars. I will never ever stop at a Gas Station for gas ... for the rest of my life!

What Erik is saying about this Meetup Group

The information shared and learned is hard to match anywhere else. And, while we're saving money and the environment every month, now we're saving even more with Mony's excellent Hybrids and now Electric Cars. We're going to change the face of transportation forever.
