Imagine getting 100 miles per gallon. That's what a hybrid Toyota Prius, retrofitted with an electric plug and heavy duty battery, is promising.
The car will travel about 40 miles in city traffic for about 80 cents worth of electricity. The cost: 4 dollars a week! That's about the cost of just one gallon of gas.
The car is the proud creation of Tallahassee owner Fran Sullivan-Fahs. The car was at a facility powered in part by solar energy, which means it could actually be free to drive.
