    Mileage jumped with Costco gas, dropped with ARCO

    I bought a salvage title 2009 Prius in August 2009. It had 4000 miles on it. Now it has 13,000. My mileage ran about 45 on ARCO regular gas until June, when I had the A/C fixed, and it immediately jumped to 47.

    About 3 weeks ago, I bought a tank of Costco gas. I had a free 3-month membership, and I was at Costco when the tank was empty, so I filled up.

    For the first time, my mpg topped 50, and even went up to 51.5 at one point. The driving conditions, temperature, tire inflation etc., had not changed. Average mpg for 452 miles was 50.5.

    Then I bought a tank of ARCO and it immediately dropped back to 47.6.

    Today I bought a tank of regular 76, just to see what happens. To get more Costco gas, I would have to join. The low price and better mileage would make it worthwhile, but I want to see if any of the nearby stations have gas that works as well. Costco is out of the way.

    New to the forum. Where can I get the "Mileage Database"? Is it a web based app?

    I have no specific suggestions but will actively support the effort. My 07 pkg 6 Touring has 114K miles, virtually trouble-free (HIDs excepted). I consistently get 42 mpg at 75 mph. K&N, clean cabin filter, tires + 4 psi over door plate and common sense about throttle position. I know I drive way too fast but the car handles it well and exceeds my mpg expectations.

    Sure. Click the link below then answer the questions. It may help to start a new thread with your questions and the answers to our questionnaire. Then we can help you figure out why you're not getting the mpg you expect.

    I'm with Jay on wanting a way to graph/display both calculated mpg AND MFD mpg and a running delta b/w the two if possible.
