Why do people chuckle when they see me driving my Prius?
I live in Texas which is big pickup truck country. I have a big gas-guzzling SUV for towing the boat or for moving large loads and I recently bought a used Prius. I bought the Prius after talking to a guy at a gas station that drove from Austin to Dallas and back (7 hr drive) on less than 1 tank of gas. While I admit the Prius looks like some kind of a space vehicle it is pretty peppy especially in power mode and of course the gas mileage is fantastic. While a normal week of driving the SUV would cost me $100 in gas, the same would be less than $30 in the Prius. What I don't get is all the people that give me funny looks when I'm driving it as if I was some kind of a hippie vegetarian or something.

I've gotten over 51 MPG and I'm spending about $250 less a month on gas! Why all the strange looks from people?

They chuckle because they know you are a low-t guy.

No, they are only laughing at the assless leather chaps you are wearing when you get in or out of the car.

Re: Why do people chuckle when they see me driving my Prius?
I'm getting a VIA truck one of these days. 40 mile plugin hybrid, better mileage than a prius. Full electric transmission, like a locomotive. Powers out? You can run your house off it using engine as a generator. Or charge it off your solar array when suns out.

Want to get the xtrux, but its a while before its on the market.

Try driving a big truck. You'll see how it feels. it does feel different than a smaller car.
But they are all just brainwashed by television Ads from the capitalistic pigs pushing materialism.

The driver seat in the Prius does not have room for testicles. Probably just chuckling at a perceived transgender.

Re: Why do people chuckle when they see me driving my Prius?
No idea why they should laugh at you. My son drove a Prius for a while and enjoyed it. He's now driving a Tesla and loves that even more. Granted, he's not in Texas, though, and the Tesla was a pricy bit of automobile, but he enjoys it immensely.
Tesla's reborn...

Should have bought a volt idiot. 80 mile drive and only 1 gallon of gas. Prius tech is outdated by far. They still run a big engine to move the cehicle. Expect a 5 year run on your battery. 6 grand for a new one. 4 grand for a refurbished. And hope your drives and what not dont go out

Re: Why do people chuckle when they see me driving my Prius?
I don't stare at drivers of a Prius. But, I dread being behind one. Pay attention, you'll notice two types of cars that the drivers drive very slow in...Subarus and Prius's.

They might be staring at you because you're slow.

Also, I heard the batteries have to be replaced every few years and are very expensive to replace. So, if you compare gas $ savings to the battery $ costs. You really aren't saving money. But, people fell for the scam anyways :)

Re: Why do people chuckle when they see me driving my Prius?
Let's see your Prius is charged from an outlet who's electricity comes from a coal fired plant. And that coal strip-mined using large petrol burning earth moving equipment & then shipped on petrol burning trucks & trains to the electrical generation facility.


It's batteries are comprised of materials that are very harmful to the environment strip-mined in South America using petrol burning earth moving equipment & then shipped to Australia on oil/coal burning cargo ships where it is turned into a battery & then shipped to Japan & America on petrol/coal burning cargo ships.



Your one Prius is way more harmful to the environment than a dealership lot full of Dodge Rams.

The batteries in a Prius only last 5 years, cost 15,000 dollars to replace & anywhere from 2,500 to 5,000 dollars to dispose of since the only recycling facilities for those batteries are in Mexico or overseas. This will all be paid for by you.


Enjoy driving your money-pit, OP.

Re: Why do people chuckle when they see me driving my Prius?
We bought a used Prius a little over a year ago and I love it.

I had been driving an Expedition which is a joke as far as MPG goes.

I usually stay within a 30 mile radius (work, chauffeuring kids, errands) and spend about $50 a month on gas.
