I'm just so excited I wanted to share my enjoyment of the Prius!! I am a first time Prius buyer, bought a 2011 Prius Three w/ Navi in Sept 2010. It changed the whole driving experience, and made me a believer in the HSD system! (Also made driving life so much less stressful, traffic jams?- no problem, speed limit?-Sure, I'll obey that!) Anyway, I always keep my tire pressure at 40/38 per suggestions on this forum, but I had been lazy with being conscious of my driving style the past couple days, and noticed I was down to 39MPG avg over 100 miles stretch (in 20 degree weather). At first I thought it was due to the temp drop from the 50s, but I was so "disgusted" by seeing 39 (even though it's better than my previous car- Toyota Yaris- had ever done even in summer time), I was determined to be able to get the "47-50 winter MPG" everyone always speaks of on these forums (vs. 53-60MPG in Summer). So I stopped being lazy, reset my trip ODO, instituted more Pulse & Glide, stopped speeding (went 62-63 in slow lane in 65 zone on highway), and over a 60 mile stretch from driving around today, I got my MPG up at 49 from driving smarter, not necessarily slower but going the speed limit or a few under, and using P&G when no one was behind me! This was in 20 degree weather with some snow in Ohio on 70% highway, 30% surface streets. This car never ceases to amaze me. Had it been summer, I probably would have been at 55MPG! But honestly, 49 MPG in 20 degree winter weather?-Yeah, I'll take that! I'm also learning more every day how to "be one" with my car and really optimize driving techniques to maximize the fuel efficiency. I'm on the verge of buying a ScanGauge II, just waiting for the price on amazon to drop!! I have always loved Toyota and our family has always been a Toyota family (my mom drove a 1993 Toyota Corolla until 2006 and put 350k miles on it, only thing besides routine maintenance that ever got replaced was alternator), but I was hesitant to buy a Prius because I wasn't a big fan of the Gen II interior styling (being in my 20s I wanted something a little more "sportier"), but when I saw what the Gen III looked like on the inside and out, I had to have it! There is NO other car that compares in my mind!! I feel like I'm going to be buying Prius for the rest of my life.. Plan on driving this one for 7-10 years, and by then the Plug-In Prius will hopefully be a little lighter on the wallet and have an EV range of 40-60 miles.
