    Default Hybrid vehicles

    Toyota has a website where you can download information about their alternative fuel and hybrid vehicles. I dwonloaded it and put the information with our Holmatro Vehicle Extrication rescue guide, as I have noticed quite a few Toyota Prius' on my communities streets.

    Honda (Insight, Civic and Accord), Ford (Escape) and Lexus (Rx400h) also have hybrid vehicles , some introduced this model year

    The site is http://techninfo.toyota.com

    It is in the Adobe pdf format.

    I could not get the link to work to the info, and I would really like to see it. I am putting together a binder of stuff for work...I looked on their website and couldn't find it. If you run across it let me know.

    Thanks!

    http://www.firegraphics.org/erg.htm

    I've got all 8 ERGs that I know of posted here on my site.

    Of course I still find this quote from the Toyota FCHV ERG the most amusing:

    It is possible to approach burning hydrogen, not see the flame and feel no heat. A UV optical detector/sensor may be used to aid in detection of a hydrogen fire (if available). A hydrogen fire may also be detected by using a long handled broom:
    1. The bristles should be made of a material that is easily ignited but does not release toxic fumes when burning, for example corn straw brooms.
    2. Hold the broom in front of you while slowly approaching the vehicle. It will ignite when passed through the hydrogen fire.


    I have yet to find a broom with a long enough handle that I'd perform this trick. 4-5000psi Hydrogen tanks? I don't think there's a telescope made strong enough for me to see the car from where I'd be sitting.
