That Yellow Taxi May Be Turning Green

The New York times talks about using Hybrid Electric cars as Taxis, with an interview with some drivers who own Toyota Prius's.

The New York Times > Automobiles > That Yellow Taxi May Be Turning Green: "Mr. Grant said he usually replaced the front brakes after 28,000 miles, but on his first Prius, the first set lasted 90,000 miles.
And because the engine does not idle, he said he did not need to replace the timing belt or fuel injector, and did not have to adjust the valves. He reported no expenses for the electric drive system in 200,000 miles."
