Eco-Nerd Rental Car

Never thought I’d get a Prius as a rental car in LA, but it was one of the best rentals I’ve ever had.

The very geeky display screen gives you all sorts of info, but I’m still not entirely sure how the car decides to balance the gas motor with the electric one. It drove very much like our old Civic and averaged around 45mpg.

The only things I didn’t like were the annoying beeping when in reverse and the stupid refusal of the display to show the currently playing song on the radio unless you were stopped.
