Cyber Hugs and Contest Time

01 May

First off I want to say thank you to all of my friends.  I don’t think I say that enough around these parts.  Thank you.  Thank you for listening to my rumbles and grumbles from all of us here at the Hotel Thompson.  We all send you massive amounts of hogs and snout kisses, puppy kisses and kitty licks.



I introduced mom’s new ride Hot Lips to you last week.  Let’s play a game.  Mom’s new car Hot Lips is a 2018 Toyota Prius Hybrid.

How many miles do you think mom can go on ONE tank of gas?

The person who gets closest without going over will get a little something from the Hotel Thompson.  Remember, don’t go over on your estimate but get as close as you can.

I want to add this part to you – mom bought her new car on APRIL 17 and the dealership filled it with gas at that time.  Mom has not filled it up herself.  So here we are May 1 and it is still going on that one initial fill up by the dealership.  So you might want to think about that in your guess.  When mom actually fills up Hot Lips for the first time, she will take a picture of her odometer (which was 15 miles when she bought it) and share it with everyone to end the contest.  Good luck my friends ❤

    It has one of the higher MPG ratings. With the hybrid, electric at low speeds, gas at higher speeds. If the daily commute is done on the freeway/expressway/highway only, with no volume or accident slowdowns, and the workplace conveniently located at an entrance/exit interchange, you’re lucky. If it’s a mix of freeway and surface streets with stop and go traffic, that’ll cut into MPG regardless of what you’re driving.

    The odometer reading guess at the next fill-up, 157 miles.

    • Piglove

      05/01/2018 at 8:04 pm

      So 157 miles on one tank of gas. Sounds encouraging. We shall see soon… maybe. XOXO Bacon

    The only way this can be answered is if you tell us how many gallons the tank holds. 🙂

    • Piglove

      05/01/2018 at 4:31 pm

      11 gallons 😀 XOXO Bacon

      Wow! So precise. I love that. That amount would definitely be impressive. Soon I hope to have the answer. XOXO Bacon

    I’m guessing between 50-58 mpg

    • Piglove

      05/01/2018 at 8:00 pm

      Give me a number for how many miles per tank? XOXO Bacon

      • Tails Around the Ranch

        05/01/2018 at 8:51 pm

        550-638 if I did the math right based on an 11 gallon tank

      • Piglove

        05/01/2018 at 9:19 pm

        Now that is a span to achieve. XOXO Bacon

  10. sheilaenglehart

    05/01/2018 at 7:58 pm

    52 mpg on average.

    • Piglove

      05/01/2018 at 7:59 pm

      So how many miles per tank? Hmm. This is going to be interesting. XOXO Bacon

  11. Amy

    05/02/2018 at 5:29 am

    605 miles

    • Piglove

      05/02/2018 at 9:46 am

      That’s a nice number. I hope it does hit that far. Wouldn’t it be great?! XOXO – Bacon

  12. Tails Around the Ranch

    05/02/2018 at 11:22 am

    I’ll venture a precise guess: 315 miles.

    • Piglove

      05/02/2018 at 2:04 pm

      Oh my. That’s what I’m talking about. Precise with a great number. ❤ Smooches XOXO – Bacon

      Wouldn’t that be awesome?! How much do you get in that new car of yours my evil friend? XOXO – Bacon

      • evilsquirrel13

        05/02/2018 at 2:15 pm

        If I ever let it run all the way down, probably between 200-250 miles. I do more stop and go driving since my job is in town. My old car got about 250 miles a tank on road trips, and I’d guess the new one might get 300…

      • Piglove

        05/02/2018 at 2:45 pm

        That’s awesome!! I think in the Jeep mom was lucky if she got 200 miles per fill up and she was filling up every week at $25-$30 a pop. I’m hoping she can save some money now… I need more treats! LOL XOXO – Bacon


This piggy would love to snort with you :)
