"The Toyota Prius, as we all know, has two
power sources which drive the vehicle. One is electric the
other is an Internal Combustion Engine (ICE). One of the
wonderful benefits of this car is that, due to the 2 power
sources, you get great gas mileage. There are ways, however,
of making optimal use of the Hybrid system to get the best Miles
per Gallon possible. The Engine Run indicator kit will tell
you when the ICE is running to help you improve your driving
technique thereby enhancing MPG's. Unlike the center
display, the LED indicator will instantly illuminate whenever the
gasoline engine is running in the Prius, even if it is just idling
or operating the A/C. Use this information to maximize your
fuel economy and to increase the efficiency of your accessories.
By careful manipulation, you can increase the time that you car is
in the silent or "stealth mode" and thereby increasing
The kit is $26.00+(S&H).
It will take approximately 10 minutes to install and requires only
a pair of needle nose pliers. The only thing visible is your
LED indicator. It attaches securely, with double face tape,
under the dash. This is a very easy installation, and as
always, CoastalEtech's support will be available to help should
you have any questions.
