Lustine Toyota in Woodbridge has a question for you. What do the Toyota Prius, Prius v, Prius c, Prius Plug-In, and Toyota Camry Hybrid all have in common? We know what you're thinking. Obviously they all operate on a hybrid platform. But more than that, each and every one of these innovative gas-electrics allows you to personally monitor your energy usage.
Using gauges and dials located on the vehicle's dash, you can directly observe how much and which kind of auto juice you're using up. Our biggest tip in this area: don't just give these tools a glance every now and again. Lustine Toyota suggests familiarizing yourself with how they work just as you'd do with a speedometer.
In addition to monitoring energy use, there are plenty of other practices you can follow to get the most out of your hybrid experience. Lustine Toyota has comprised a small list and encourages you to peruse it.- Be gentle with the accelerator; press it lightly to keep the vehicle in EV mode
- Break softly and early to boost regenerative braking effects
- Don't select 'N' neutral when you aren't moving
- Utilize cruise control when possible to maintain steady speed
