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!

The upgrades you speak of are probably not yet cost effective. They want several mils for the upgrade, and you can run several years on the amount of gas that will buy you.

For example, I spent about $2700 on fuel for the last two years I have owned the Prius, and drove 62K miles at an average of 55 MPG.
