    I have a 2012 V that I got late fall early winter and I have over 15K on it now. Looking to break 25K per year with business traveling.

    2fas4u: this is just incredibly cool! i've been following you from the gen 2 prius you had and now this. love reading your updates and posts about the new V. I have a 2012 model two prius hatch. i like the V space, just wish it was all wheel drive and a bit more power.

    Did you ever look into a Highlander hybrid or the Camry Hybrid? any thoughts about those with putting on these kind of miles?

    I would think the camry might be more comfortable, long term, long rides. nice large up front area in highlander too, though nothing close to this kind of mileage.

    118778 as of 04/22/14
    new tires purchased at costco bridgestone turanza but different model not happy with mpg
    I am getting under 40 at highway speeds of 63 with my other tires I was getting 48mpg.
    It could be the tire pressure the techs set it to I am going to up the pressure to 40 and see how it goes if not these tires need to go:(

    One of my low beams went out and a plate light as well I drive mostly at night as I work graveyard.
    Will be changing out ATF oil @ 120

    Update 127195
    The bridgestone turanza serenity plus were returned the pressure did not help my mpg after 6k miles
    I asked the sales person why the tire were not giving me great mpg they stated the tire was heavier than OEM
    It was a very nice smooth tire but not if you drive how I do I was losing 2 gallons of gas a day I was livid..

    I bought some continental pure contact eco plus through tire rack and had a local shop install them
    I asked them to put the pressure to 42 / 40 after 2,000 miles I noticed my mpg were still off last night I checked my tire pressure it was 30 / 33 moral of the story double check tire pressure.
    I filled them up to 44 /42 and amazingly my mpg is now on point loving my priusv once again.

    I had husband change my spark plugs / atf oil @ 120K

    will update when I get to 150K
