  First off, congratulations on the new driver!  Er, and higher 
insurance premiums. (BG)

  Concerning sensitivity of new engines to (you name it), I gotta agree. 
  The engine in Peg's Prius is sensitive to over filling of the sump. 
It would appear that if there's too much oil in the pan it impeded the 
crank's rotation and it's manifested in lower gas mileage.

   Another thing on the Prius is that it runs worse on higher octane gas 
than regular unleaded.  Dunno why.

  I remember the sludge incidences.  AIR they did e re-design of the 
breather/EGR systems and shortened the change intervals.  Weren't there 
some recalls?
