    This looks to me like a clear case that you should switch cars! The P deserves to be driven, LEAFS are for "old men style" driving :)

    Thank You. She's all that; trust me. And as we say in the Midwest: I've been to a county fair.:smile:

    That looks suspiciously like the last (and only) time my wife valet parked!

    If I said that, I'd be in trouble from multiple sources! But I will say that I like how his wife drives. ;-)

    When I read the thread title, I was expecting to see pictures of a smashed up Model S. Flaming can start now /lol

    Looks like she was scared to let the power consumption drop below rated for very long :wink:
    I'm not sure what that might do to an S?

    I'm sure you weren't the only one. The difference was the others kept their thought bubble to themselves. Evolution.

    Indeed.

    Sorry about the title. Unintended I assure you.

    No hills. Just a short drive on county roads to the grocery store with no posted limit above 45mph. She's always been a "spirited" driver. She "comes by it honestly" as we say in Indiana. She and her mother have gotten tickets on the same day from the same cop, more than once. She also enjoys ruining my numbers. She thinks it's cute that I'm a geek, and like the energy game and track the numbers. It's a throwback to the Prius. I'm no Jerry33 but I've had months in the Prius where my monthly mileage was going to easily exceed 50mpg and she'd come back from a drive with the average down to 45.

    Her only comment after her drive that made the energy graph look like the Swiss Alps was: "I like your car, it's got a lot of PEP."

    I may have to try to talk her into the Non Performance MX.:smile:
