Prius User-Guide Last Updated: 6/01/2007 DRIVING Just Drive It ! Vital Info Ignore the advanced technology! It’s too easy to get preoccupied with everything Prius automatically does for you, especially with the Multi-Display providing constant performance information. The hybrid system was designed so you could to drive it like a traditional car. That way, you can enjoy the remarkably smooth & quiet ride. Let the computer worry about how to save gas and reduce emissions. Startup Engine Warm-Up Reducing Emissions is the highest priority for Prius. It strives to remain a SULEV (Super Ultra Low Emission Vehicle) at all times, which means the catalytic-converter must be kept warm even if that requires consuming some gas to accomplish that. Fortunately, you still get better than average mileage, even if the engine doesn’t shut off right away. Creating heat for the emissions system and heat to keep you warm is fastest and most efficient if you simply drive gently immediately after starting the Prius in the winter. Allowing the engine to run while the Prius is parked takes longer and is less efficient. “Just Drive It!” The user-manual states to turn the key and hold it until you hear a beep. Realistically, you can actually let go of the key immediately. Once the computer accepts your request, the engine will startup after preparation is complete. Think of it as clicking a button on a computer-mouse. The catch is you must still wait for the “READY” prompt before shifting into Reverse or Drive. The blue light, which looks like a thermometer in liquid, is located to the right of the speedometer. It indicates the engine is still cool. This is normal during engine warm-up, it is not a warning. It will usually disappear about in 5 minutes, depending on the outside temperature and if the Prius was recently used. Driving slowly immediately after startup, rather than just waiting while parked, is the most efficiently method of reducing warm-up time. Idling until warm-up is complete before driving takes longer and wastes gas.
