Greetings - I purchased a 2007 Touring Edition last week, and filled up today averaging 48 MPG!! Truly amazing car. Thanks to this forum for the terrific articles, information, and lively discussion. Although I would likely have purchased a hybrid, the decision to get the Prius was solidified by this forum. I've owned many cars and motorcycles and I can honestly say that this forum is as informative and helpful as any I've even joined or visited. Thanks to all for a fine job.
