Default I want more! More MPG, less emissions...

I am a fleet administrator for what will soon be 100 Priuses (and new to Priuses to boot).

Can someone help me get more information on how to better my fuel economy - Battery Upgrades, Plug-In upgrades, etc???

I am checking into CalCars' upgrades now, but if you know of any others, please share!

Thank you!

You will have plenty of time while awaiting for 100 new Prii to investigate.

The known mods cost on the order of $10,000 and void the warranty. Would not that be a deal killer? Or are you intending these to be a large-scale demo of plug-in hybrids and not just a reduction in the cost of ownership?

ALL of the above - save the earth, reduce dependence on foreign oil, less trips to the gas station - be responsible corporate citizens.

These drivers know how to get the most out of a Prius.
