Picture of me charging the Prius Plug-in hybrid electric car for my wife’s trip to camp this morning. I liked this quote from David Christ, general manager of Toyota’s New York Region. “The Prius Plug-In MPG Challenge is yet another opportunity for Toyota to demonstrate its commitment to educating drivers on how they can make an ecological difference in this world.”
As you can see here, I am documenting my activity in real-time via social channels, including:
MPGe wins the challenge
*Miles per gallon gasoline equivalent (MPGe) is a measure. I mean of the average distance traveled per unit of energy consumed channels:
Just as a heads up. I have to win the MPGe which is *Miles per gallon gasoline equivalent (MPGe) is a measure of the average distance traveled per unit of energy consumed.
Even though I busted everyone’s chops; Well let’s just say I am not gonna win the challenge for the #Prius #Plug-in #MPG #Challenge.
This Toyota challenge to me was more important for others to learn how to drive a plug-in hybrid electric car.
I’ve been driving electric cars since the 90’s. I know how amazing they are. It’s a gift to me to see others learn and excel at their MPGe. That means someone else got the EV bug.
It’s exciting to know others are doing great with the challenge since it’s now another person that learned how great electric cars: and in this case plug-in hybrid electric carsare for driving.
So Heck, I let others try the car which was much more important than me driving an electric car!! My neighbors, friends and family members far and wide. Each one helped toward the plug in challenge for the American Cancer Society and the World Wildlife Fund. That is more rewarding now than first, second or third place. I’ll donate to the organizations going forward. That’s a fact so it’s not the money. It’s the principle!

I’m thrilled to be participating in Toyota’s Prius Plug-in MPG Challenge. For the next 30 days, I’ll be driving a Prius plugin hybrid to win money for Eleventh Hour Rescue. I’ve got some serious competition with my green colleagues – Earth Day New York, Inhabitat, EcoKaren, Green Living Guy (aka Green Dude Seth Leitman), Green-4-U, and New York Green Advocate.
