    I accomplished the same thing on the 1st (before driving) just by doing the same number of refreshes without waiting in between. It took a short EV drive to add the sheep, oranges, and trees.

    PS, some have said you can't drive and get a 100% ECO score. I did this morning on a 28 mile drive.

    First and foremost I'm NOT condoning drug usage.
    I've never taken acid.
    BUT...
    The whole original OP post on the ECO dashboard had a very Ken Kesey, The Band Of Merry Pranksters feel to it. I really think it should be set to music and read aloud, maybe use Sitar, and to the tune of "Across The Universe".

    Seriously, I was unaware that anything like this even existed for Prius Owners. With the Gen 4 Prius, I thought we had moved away from cartoon examples of Harmony between Man, Nature and Machine. I mean, The Prius is now sexy, and non-compromise. It only saves the world now, as a "secret identity". Toyota doesn't really want trees and sheep suddenly appearing in it's wake. We did that about 8 years ago, and it ended with a horrific mummenshanz like creature, made up of people. I've tried hard to block that out of my psyche.

    Please, I'm not knocking the work done to reveal this information. Or the post itself at all. I think it's great. Most entertaining post I've read in a long time. But I did have to read twice just to make sure I wasn't having a stroke.

    Absolutelylement, mon ami; back at Yew!!At my house we celebrate the 4th and the14th !! However, I doughnut know how in the heck you are able to achieve zees fantabulous 100% on Eco Dashboard; my car will repeatedly read over 90%, but when I check the Eco Dashboard readings on Entune (Untuned?), I barely reach 85% or 86%. As Mel Brooks would say, "shvatziss??!!" (I know you're wondering, but no, I am not a Yiddish scholar!)

    It takes extreme sphincter control, a little gritting of teeth, and a highly tuned foot.:p

    Seriously? You can't improve your score by carpooling?

    Seems deeply counterproductive.

    Wait, so 100/100 is supposed to be hard to get? :) I just received our Prime a couple of days ago, so I don't really have any real data. The MPG is because the dealership drove it 70+ miles down here on 0% charge in Power mode.

    Just curious, is there any thread that talks about the rankings? Are these national, regional, or state? Reset each month or cumulative? Since there aren't 100+ 2nd place cars, I'm guessing the ECO Driving Score is ranked based on distance driven with that Score?

    FWIW, my commute is only a couple of miles in a small, somewhat hilly town with a 30mph speed limit. No real traffic, so I can keep my acceleration, deceleration, and cruise all "in the blue" so to speak without incurring the wrath of following cars.

    Welcome to PriusChat! Enjoy your daily little town 30 mph commute; here in SoCal even on surface streets, we're forced to keep up with the stampede of the animals! Over here, 30 mph is viewed by most drivers as being a "suggested minimum speed limit", observed by very few people. I'm lucky to hit 85% or 86% Eco here due to the traffic conditions. Up until this current 110° Anaheim Heat Wave, I HAVE been getting 34 miles of EV range, always in Power Mode. The A/C will cut that back to about 32 miles of EV range. Don't talk about freeway driving; like several of my fellow plugin drivers, I now look forward to heavy traffic for optimum EV economy! Enjoy your new Toy(ota)!

    Sorry to derail, but I only ever see a ~20 mile estimate. I gather you are just running until it switches over?

    Oh, and I'm about to loose all these embellishments curtesy of a 100 mile interstate round trip, so I might as well post my sun/rainbow/oranges now!

    Yeah, my trips almost always fall within the EV only range, plus I never heat, and try not to use A/C. I practice the "Crippled Snail" technique of driving to extend the range of EV as well as get a better Eco Dashboard score (not all Primes have access to this; only if you have an Entune account). Over time, your EV range will increase if you continue to drive (excuse the expression my Liberal friends) conservatively. It is frustrating to lose those "embellishments" on Eco Dashboard, as I have in June, and (so far) in July when you take those longer trips; I'm currently paying penance for my July transgressions, hoping to get back on "Dash" board! Oh, and welcome to Prime Ownership and Priuschat!

    I know it's not March, but it sure feels like Lent, with all the penance I've had to do for my transgression in using gasoline on one day of this month! I have diligently plowed ahead and expect to bring Le PrimeSnail back on the Eco Dashboard any day now!! And the Snail expects to be at or near the top of the list... Here we come, full of electrons, with muted ICE!! Yahoo!
