Yep, I was going 75 in a 25, didn't even realize it. This baby really zips. I am in love!

This is where you can use the myth that hybrids are slow and under powered ... Claim the car can't possibly go that fast because it has an electric motor...

If that fails, say you where racing the battery to the wall socket ;-)

CVT and speed control

Brings up an interesting point. We're trained from an early age to gauge our speed by the roar of the motor -- certainly at highway cruising speed, it's a reasonably reliable indication of your speed, in every car except the Prius. (The Honda IMA still retains this relationship.)

I find myself relying heavily on the speedometer if I'm not in a traffic pattern.

>I got the cruise control with mine. Set it and forget it.

That's how I avoid them in small towns, set the cruise to 30 and inch through.
