    This is a video of my trip documenting the mpg and EV ratio of my 2016 generation 4 model three Prius while driving up slope to 4,000' and then back down. For more of my Prius videos search this forum or go to my youtube channel Wonderful Wandering Topics where you can also see other interesting topics.

    Obviously you should drive downhill more than up hill.

    When you need to go uphill, you do it in reverse. That way your actually going downhill.
