    So, it’s not really hot yet but temperatures are up and a flat slow commute sure help the MPG’s climb.

    I just got about 45 mpg round trip in 100 degree weather with the climate control set at 71.
    You ain't seen summer yet! :D

    When I do use the climate control I set mine @ 78. Does blow coolish air at that setting...

    I have mine set to 70 @ 2 bars on blower and still get 65/85 going and coming home from work. Think I will set it to auto to see if its still the same on tomorrow's commute.

    I am truly amazed. It is my third Prius (2016, 2018, and now 2019), and this morning's commute - my first one with the new Prius - was at 70MPG. I could not believe my eyes. I have my AirCo on Eco mode, with passenger/full optimization, but never did my previous Priuses get a mileage similar to this one. Woo Hee!

    Why changing so often?

    It wasn't my idea, but Florida drivers seem to have an aversion to my Priuses. Got rear ended and totaled twice now. :/

    I'm up to roughly 70 mpg city, but that's for short jaunts only (<10 mi)

    Just curious. Is this all city?

    Yes, all city driving. Since I am retired I am never in a hurry and tend to avoid the freeway.

    Lol. I resemble that remark. You cannot get good gas mileage when you're in a hurry. :cool:
