    June of this year I drove a Prius from Lubbock to Cape Cod for a friend. I had never driven a Prius before but have been doing research for the last year or so. I drove 2,167 miles on 42 plus a fraction gallons, actual calculation for entire trip was 51.51 MPG. Set cruise control on 65 MPH and that's all I did. During this trip I ran into that rain storm that hit PA and NY so I was very pleased to get that mileage. Enough so that I purchased a package 7 with leather, from what I can tell that would be a package 8 without leather steering wheel? Will pick car up on 7/19/06.

    Congrats and welcome to PS.com! Man, wish I had leather, wasn't available in 2004 and didn't want aftermarket.

    I got what was available at dealership, white/gray. White was one of my preferences but would have chose bisque. No big deal, vehicle looks just fine and I know it will give excellent service.
