Description

The project involved the modification of a 2006 Toyota Prius into a "Flex-Fuel Hybrid Vehicle." Included within the presentation: testing procedures, available kits, E-85 information, fuel blending procedures, costs, fuel efficiency, emissions outcomes, drivability, performance, and final outcome. The team used the time and money donated to modify a Prius that will be able to use gasoline and E-85 in order to have cleaner emissions and to reduce the dependency on foreign oil. The vehicle was tested for emissions, fuel economy, and performance, including drivability. The results were then analyzed for advantages and disadvantages of the fuels used during the testing period with the Prius.
