Hiya,

It's yours truly, and I'm wondering who's located around the Orlando area. Perhaps we can gather a large, eclectic group. There's plenty of places in the area to meet!

I'm in the suburbs. Hopefully I'll hear from some of the other Floridians. Thanks!

Jumperless, close enough I've only seen about 5 hyrids _total_ in this area. I spotted my second New Prius (besides my own) the other day, and saw a couple Classics. I don't think I've ever seen an Insight.

I know we have at least 3 Insights in this area (red, green and silver), Iíve seen 3 2004 Priuses and a lot of the older Priuses. Iíve also noticed quite a few Civic Hybrids, but theyíre not as easy to spot.

How can you tell if the Civics are hybrids?

The front grill is slightly different, it has one large bar, the antenna is located in the center, above the windshield and they have a hybrid logo on the back.

Ah. I suppose I'll look out for it, though I'm honestly tired of seeing the Civic. It's too popular around here

That is sad, but Iím surprised we have as many as we do here. Last time I was in the bay area of California visiting family, I saw a ton of them. I even saw one Honda FCX (fuel cell) and a few RAV4 EVs (electric). I think if I lived in that area and had a bad commute (which pretty much everyone does in that area), Iíd have a hybrid for sure. But for now, I have a short 3 mile commute.
