Toyota Prius thread?

Post by T1 Terry » Sat, 28 Oct 2017, 08:19

Are there any topics here that discuss the Toyota Prius in particular? Now I have my 2008 Brisbane taxi Prius registered it's time to start fiddling with it :twisted: It now has 710,000km on the original engine and drive train, the left hand drive shaft is up for replacement, apparently the battery was replaced with a second hand one from a wreck back in 2006 at around 600,000kms and at the moment it seems to be working fine.

Questions:
Does anyone know the voltage range of the battery pack?
Has anyone tried linking LYP cells directly to the Prius cells to extend the capacity/range?
What criteria determines when the ICE motor is engaged and can this be altered at all?
