    Hello everyone,

    I succumbed to the high cost of premium fuel and traded my beloved Infiniti G37x for a new Prius C. I was spending about $375/ mo. on gas (ouch) on my 100 mile per day round-trip commute. So, after watching every YouTube review and lurking here for a few weeks, I purchased the C and brought her home last night. 45 mpg indicated average so far through some very varied terrain, including some large hills. The C had no trouble pulling up the hills, even some steep highway grades with cruise and Eco mode on. That was my last fear allayed.

    Sweet! But, didn't you take a test drive up those hills before buying?
