Plug In Week End…

Hypermiling and Acton Toyota Event

SIDE NOTE to readers about readers:
So I had to buy a new reader for my Kodak camera memory.
8 gb SDHC is too big for my current reader.
Vivitar 72-in-1 Card Reader/Writer I selected the Vivitar 72 in 1 at Staples.

It was raining so I skipped the rally.
Instead went to the presentation of Hypermiling by Wayne Gerdes.
It was an interesting talk.
I also took some pictures of the Plug In Prius on display.

So why did I mention the memory reader ?
Kodak logo
Because Kodak is “America’s Story Teller” and this is the story I want to tell…
It becomes harder all the time with all the stories being told in the news and on the Internet to be heard anymore.
But when Acton Toyota brings in a celebrity to explain how to improve your gas milage and the rally is won by a 1990 VW with a gasoline engine I realize there is more than the car involved.

There is a mindset that says we can get improved cost of ownership by just driving more sensibly.
But what will it take to get drivers to slow down ?
