We had a good showing as usual and fielded plenty of questions about the vehicles. The team did an excellent job as always. The festival is usually our first major display and the students were ready for the task. We get the same questions year after year, but we have noticed that the general public is becoming more aware of electric and hybrid vehicles. This is a good sign, and it also helps that gas prices are pretty high right now, making more people think about alternative fuel sources.

On a side note, we have not had to water the cells for over 6 months because of the Water Miser Vent Caps from Flow Systems. The caps have done an exceptional job and we only had to top off the cell levels slightly, using only a half gallon for 16 cells.
