I stopped and allowed the engine to recharge for about 5 minutes. I took off again and promptly ran the battery down again.
Is there a way to drive Prius in the mountains without need for stopping every 10 miles?
Thanks everyone for the input. It makes sense really, I'm just not used to the MFD and all its nuances just yet. Time will tell. I was worried that I would become stranded -
