    I just did 37.6mpg for about 74 miles lol.

    Eco mode with AC on at 72f. Very hot out side.

    Crawling up and down hills all day with constant stopping.

    Had this been a non hybrid 4cyl. I bet it would be below 20 mpg.

    Hey Pilot! Yeah...you prob would have been in the 20's mpg with most other rides if not all. hahaha. It's painful when we see a lower mpg in our Toys due to conditions b/c now we have expectations of higher mpg's, but it's good to keep it all in perspective like you did. I need to remember that too.
    I've been using the a/c a little this summer but I've been keeping it at about 78, 79. I've learned how to drive the Prius better in the last week...believe it or not. hahah. I keep the ECO slider below the 1/2 way point and that either maintains my current mpg or it switches to battery. My cruise and coasting has increased which has contributed to increasing my mpg, even with the a/c. I do take a hit with the a/c on...no way around it...but it's less as I practice the ECO slider game.
    Stay cool (y)
