As you can see my 08′ Prius had seen better days… it had been good to my fuel bill for the last 14 months (I would say average 44 mpg) but now it was time to give it up. I wont lie my back is not complaining. I bought the Prius with 59k on the clock and the deer ended its life with 134,300 miles. Yes you are reading that right for those of you who didn’t immediately pull out a calculator I put 5,378 miles per month on my beloved Prius. In other numbers if I averaged 50 miles per hour I spend 107.56 hours per month in the car, or 26.89 hours per week, or 5.38 hours per day. Someone once told me that working this type of job you get a lot of “windshield” time, I don’t think that I realized exactly how much of that “windshield” time would be required.

So long my friend, my fuel bill may miss you but my body and back will not miss you at all.
