Perhaps you could explain this fuel injection system display that enables
you to read fuel consumption to 0.01 of a US gallon.

Sounds interesting. I know nothing of the Prius instrumentation.


The readout is linked to the fuel injection system which measures
exactly how much fuel it is injecting at all times.  It is very
accurate and agrees with what I get when I fill the tank.

The Axon Automotive vehicle is designed
around patented carbonfiber roll cage frame
which should protects the driver during impact
(the carbonfiber roll cage frame would act like
a racing car's steel roll cage frame ).
If the driver is strapped in the roll cage would
protect the driver - I would venture to guest
that the main impact danger to a strapped in
driver would be internal organ damage from
the shock of the initial impact and the posiblity
of the vehicle going up in flames ( it depends
on how heat resistance the Axon Automotive
vehicle is if the ICE start burning up )

correction/clarification/whoops!

The Axon 8080 reportedly get 100 mpg using Imperial gallons
which is  slightly more than a US gallon - so the Axon 8080
fuel efficiency is 83 mpg which when converted to U.S. gallons.

The Axon 8080's carbon fiber roll cage would probably provide
good front and rear collision protection but it would not provide
much is side impact protection.

What kind of problem(s) with the Jag?

Michael,

Wiring, the plastic insulation was just crumbling apart everywhere,
just shaking off as it went over bumps and would short out something.
The car ran fine for a while and the and then just died at real bad
times, after that happen a couple times just getting back from the
shop (once on the way back from the shop), I told them after what I
paid for repairs that lasted a few miles and didn't fix the problem,
they only had one more chance to get it right or I'd give someone else
the repair and money.

Anyway, like I said, it was a pretty good car considering, I didn't
like their behavior in the end, but the past is the past and after
all, I knew they were car salesman to begin with.
