    Well I picked up Pepper today (C2 Habenaro). Drove home from the dealer in the rain :( so no Pics, Maybe tomorrow. She had 8 miles on her!! Drove 19 miles from the dealer in ECO mode being careful to keep her in the eco sweet spots and she returned 56.4 MPG for the 19 mile trip.

    Looking foward to my 28 mile each way commute tomorrow to work. I LOVE my little car. Pepper is great!!:cheer2:

    If it did 56.4mpg (say 53 rw) in the rain you should be happy tomorrow.

    The 28 mile each way trip should really yield some rockin MPGs! My daily commutes are more like 7 miles and just as soon as I get car warmed up it's time to shut it off.

    Pepper and I had our first commute to work this morning (light rain again). The 28 mile one way is 45 and 55 mph on country roads with hills and the Taconic state parkway. Got 48.1 MPG. To be honest I did baby her and took it slow and mostly stayed at the speedlimit. No tailgaters as I leave the house at 6:20am and never have any traffic. I have 3 traffic lights. I tried to add a picture or an attachment of me leaving the house this morning but I'm not that experienced with this sort of thing. I hope it worked. :rockon:

    Congrats! You look very happy behind the wheel this morning. :)

    Consider going on to Fuelly to track your fill-up mpg's and to share it with your fellow Prius C owners....
