Kinda small and on an 88 degree humid day in Chicago, he took the engine efficiency to the extreme by not putting on the Air.
So I chat with him about the Interactive display that he has on his dash. It shows when its burning fuel v when the rechargeable battery is engaged. It also shows estimated miles left in the tank/battery combo as well as his MPG.
Dude was getting 48.7 mpg!! Pretty cool, even if I was sweating and rolled my window down to street-level.
Then it dawned on me that I still had to pay the $1.00 fuel surcharge as authorized by Da' Mayor. SHOULD I really have to pay when the impact is minimized by technology??
I guess the only remaining thought in my head is that he had no dividing glass in his cab. To that end I do fear for his safety down the road.
Thanks Nana Ogundala for the ride. It was informative and damp.
