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

I'm still driving the Prius with damage from 3 kids (aged 9 months to 16 years), a hyperactive beagle and half a dozen accidents.

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

I had been interested in the hybrids- when my last car died, I walked into Toyota of Newport and they had one on their lot- I bought it immediately!

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

I drive my 2004 Prius hard- I bought it used in 2005 at 19,000 km (12,000 miles) and have driven it to 145,000 km (90,000 miles) at an average of about 70 km/gal (45 mpg) as of 2008.

Introduction

I live in Newport, RI but I run the web site www.Toyoland.com. As a Prius owner, I am particularly interested in featuring Prius owners and events on the site. I go to Canada to visit relatives as well (the pic of my Prius was taken in Quebec City).
