When the 2nd generation Prius first came out, I read an article on Digg that claimed that the Hummer was the more ecologically sound vehicle. A bit mystified by the assertion I went and checked their assumptions. Basically it was that the Hummer was going to be driven for 300000 miles before it was junked, and that every piece of the Hummer would then be recycled. For the Prius, the wheels were going to fall off at 100000 miles, and nothing was going to be recycled. Well, sometime on the 24th my 2004 Prius clicked over 100000 miles. I wonder how much longer I have until the bottom drops out?? That’s also 100000 miles which I averaged about 50 miles per gallon on, with no real maintenance other than oil changes and a couple sets of tires. Any Hummer owners want to compare?
