In addition to baby Theo, Team Shum was upgraded with a new fuel economy ambassador.
“Eco II” is a 2016 Toyota Prius, and a replacement to “Eco”, Toby and Mary’s 2008 Prius.
Toby and Mary were considering a 2013 but were surprised to find a 2016 in the used car lot. A quick test drive confirmed the new fourth-gen/XW50 Prius was significantly upgraded in every way, making the decision easy.
One of the nifty feature of Eco II is that it rates how our driving can improve fuel economy. As Toby no longer has a Playstation at home this temporarily scratches his itch. He has been obsessively taking it easy on the gas pedal. Quite a change in habit!
