  1. Done, I can only hope it will be used for more than just marketing. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  2. Still trying to find an iPhone app that’s like hybrid assistant for android. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  3. It now works again lol Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  4. The dr Prius app has been updated and the display is green like it is supposed to be. Only the battery pack voltage briefly goes red under braking when I am leaving the motorway. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  5. Previously I used an altoids mint tin, I could just about get away with it to open the doors while still in the tin. Since the car wasn’t close to the house and the possibility of the neighbours having keyless entry as well might further frustrate a potential thief. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  6. Maybe you have pressed the clutch fully on the first go. That’s what I suspected with our previous, Yaris hybrid. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  7. That’s something I haven’t seen before, not on the older one we had. The tpms reset is usually in the glove box, the immobiliser is normally more prominent. So I’m intrigued as to what it is. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  8. That’s we drive Toyotas. Not like the Vauxhalls we used to have or fiat like the gf used to have. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  9. Looks like the app is the problem and to force recharge, is pop in drive push both pedals while handbrake is on and about 5 minutes it should be almost full. No codes or pending, battery temp 25C. I thought there was a problem, because I was in the car park with it in park and had my foot to the floor. The aircon was on auto, and it was only momentarily showing charging and then draining. On the drive back I had the energy flow display on. That was showing the normal pattern of use. So it was all my fault and the car was still doing the normal mpg. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  10. Houston we have a problem, went shopping as normal. Had the dr Prius app on , everything showing in red. After a 10 mile run on the motorway, it’s still red. Sat in the car park forcing the engine to run, the doc is hovering between 40-45%. Wonder if it’s the blocked fan. Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  11. Wondered what had happened to your car with the pink stuff on the tailgate lol Nice job, have to admit I’m too lazy for all the steps you go through. I will give the soap/foam attachment for the hydroshot a go soon. Hopefully I’ll get it better next time, Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  12. Always remember people calling the p button as panic lol Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  13. Had fun this morning, stopped sharply due to a kind driver not using their indicators. Went to set off again, but the accelerator felt funny and the car was crawling. So pressed the power mode to get me going at a useable speed. Once I got work, I discovered the problem, the sudden stop caused my ice scraper to fly into the foot well and get trapped under the pedal. Oh well another new experience [emoji23] Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
  14. The quoted figures are for the ideal circumstances. I sometimes use the hybrid assistant android app coupled with a Bluetooth obd device. I often compare the same routes, to judge the differences between my driving and other factors that I cannot control (traffic and weather / lights on or off). I can say, things are improving now the temperature is getting warmer and I have stopped being lazy and using cruise control. Sent from my iPad using Tapatalk
  15. Have a test drive, see if you like the car and how it feels. The reviews can’t answer those questions. When I was thinking about my first hybrid, I had a test drive and drove it as I drove my own car, that was the deal clincher. If you have lead feet then a hybrid won’t give you the kind of mpg that you have read about. They require a light touch, whether you are on the motorway or city centre roads.
