    I purchased my 2019 Prius Prime in March 2019 to replace a BMW 328i that had a blown transmission. In the past seven months, I have driven the Prime more than 17,000 miles.

    If I add up my fuel and electricity costs, the Prime has saved me $1,600 in fuel costs alone over the past seven months (the BMW got 24 MPG and used premium fuel). That should translate to about $2,740 per year!

    Amazing is the only word I can think of!

    Eh - the BWM was lots of fun to drive. The Prius has several features my BMW didn't have though, including all the safety stuff (backup camera, lane departure warning, dynamic cruise control, etc.) But yeah, I do miss the BMW -- the Prius has a lot more difficulty overtaking slower cars on the freeway, etc. ;)
