How to Increase MPG in your Prius

I found this while reading some postings on regarding how to get one’s spouse to want to drive her new hybrid car to maximize fuel effeciency:

What does she really want? A new dishwasher? A day at the spa? Diamonds?

Use whatever she craves as a carrot. Tell her when she manages her first 50mpg tank you’ll buy her “blahblah” as a congratulations gift.

She’ll have to really practice to make the 50 mpg tank. By that time her bad habits will probably be history.

Also works for husbands.

Similar bribery can also modify the behavior of small children.

Pets are easy….just offer food. But don’t let them drive your Prius. They can’t both steer and work the pedals.
