What kind of mileage did the hybrids get? I read the blog, interesting, but not one number for mileage. I know they were in a horrible storm, but still nothing about how the cars performed other than no problems.

I want to know, how is the transition from battery to engine. All the important details.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!

i think the strangest part is my whole life when i turned the key something happens. well now you turn the key and nothing. i put it in reverse and back it went just like a golf cart. same with going forward until i hit about 20 or 30 and the engine came on. it was a couple of months ago so i cant remember what speed it came on. i think 30.

REWARD EXCELLENCE!
