    If I accelerated from a stop using all EV in LA I'd be run off the road. Maybe I'm just conditioned, but using EV to accelerate from a stop just feels so slow.

    First 700 Mile tank!
    2017-06-30 16.58.06.jpg

    I had about 40 miles to empty, but I didn't feel like "tickling the dragon", and try for 800.

    74.5 displayed, but with 10.099 gallons, it calculates out to 71.69. Lifetime is up to 62.1.

    There's been a steady climb in mpg since March. I fill up roughly every three weeks:

    Code:
     mpg  fuelup_date
    71.69 6/30/2017
    69.69 6/8/2017
    68.85 5/17/2017
    66.57 4/27/2017
    57.84 4/7/2017
    57.01 3/22/2017
    59.04 3/6/2017
    58.76 2/15/2017
    57.87 1/20/2017
    60.64 1/6/2017
    55.86 12/20/2016
    60.62 12/5/2016

    This can't be real, but it's good for a laugh. I never look at the ODO or lifetime mpg average, I'm usually always on Trip-A.

    My last tank has reached almost 74 (UK) mpg. When I do the actual calculated based upon the fuel fill up, it works out at 70 (UK) mpg in reality, which is 58 (US) mpg. According to the dash calculation, I'm saving over £200 ($260) in fuel costs every month compared to my previous car V6 gas guzzler. Plus, I'm saving another £230 ($300) a month because my Gen 4 is exempt from London's congestion charge. So whilst all my peers laugh at my boring and sensible choice of vehicle, I'm saving a total £430 ($560) every month from this choice.

    Good on you my friend! Like you I'm saving more than half of what I was paying for fuel since I got my Prius, although there no congestion charge down here even with all the Emits (like snowbirds) clogging our Westcountry roads and lanes. Glad you you can metaphorically cock-a-snook at your peers as they waste their hard earned cash on motion lotion.

    PS. Emits is a Cornish word for Ants. Their cars form long lines of traffic jams into and out of Cornwall in the summer season - like a line of ants.

    Seeing your screen makes me miss my 2G Prius! It was a fantastic car, and paid for itself at least twice over. But my 4G Prius is lightyears ahead in terms of technology...

    Anybody else here use a T-Mobile Sync Up Drive? Just wondering if anybody has compared the MPG numbers that generates against what the Prius computer generates.
