    I think @mmmodem is getting close (maybe 140 k miles).

    And he’ll be out your way soon(y).

    I still get close to 10 EV miles per charge even after 5 brutal AZ summers ( with AC on in summer its 8.5 EV miles)

    Have reset the EV Trip 1 & 2 many time so not sure about the whole ratio. Typically I reset the EV trip2 for each gas filling and I get somewhere between 400 miles to 470 miles per tank with 14% to 22% EV Ratio.

    Every day I get two full charges ( full charge at night and use mostly EV miles to drop the kids at school in the morning + one more full charge before getting out for work ). Daily work commute is 105 miles. 2 days work
    With flexible work timings, almost all high way miles not during peak traffic times . Have an HOV plate ( what a relief!!!!:):) ) to use the HOV line which further make it easy. But the speeds to keep up here on the left most line takes a toll on the gas mileage :eek:

    Eh, put on a jacket. No biggie.

    Let's see, just a few hundred miles below 140k for me.
    10k OCI with cheapest 0w20 and filter you can buy. It probably got the good stuff the first 70k miles when Toyota did the work.
    Never changed cabin filter. Dusted off once I think
    Air filter is K&N and I wash and oil when it looks dirty
    Spark plugs at 120k, way to early IMO but owners manual specified it
    Transaxle drain at 120k with gracious help from Prius chat members
    On original 12v
    On second set of dirt cheap tires replaced at 90k. Unlikely these will last 90k like OEM EP20. Need some snows soon anyway.
    I charge immediately when I get home and may leave full over weekend 3 or 4 days.
    Car showed 10.6 EV miles yesterday. I used to be very methodical in measuring EV to HV changeover for battery degradation tracking purposes. But I recorded >1 mile variance in location of the changeover on "identical" zero traffic conditions at 4:30 AM when I set out to work everyday. 10% variance despite my efforts tells me my morning commuter is not identical.
    I plan to keep the car a long time.

    Congratulations!
    It'll be a while for me. Got it 10-1/2 months ago with 54,xxx miles on it. Last night it hit 67,000. We have a 2,000+ mile trip coming up starting Tuesday, so I'll make some headway. But at 15,000 miles a year, I may succumb to the itch for a newer Prius before I get there. :D
