    I left Friday for Vegas and then took a day trip to Zion- beautiful! Got a few good pics of the Prius, and I got excellent mileage!

    Enjoy!

    Hey seaside, what is that on the tip of your antenna?

    It's an antenna ball needed to reduce mileage. Without it, the mileage would be much too high and nobody would believe the readings on the MFD. :p

    It is a Mickey Mouse antenna ball as previously noted :) I have thought about taking it off because I worry it bends the antenna too much! But, I had it on my 2005, so I thought I would carry the tradition over on the new one! Honestly I thought it would get stolen by now!

    Mileage I averaged about 52 mpg which is awesome for my style of driving! The car did great, I passed many many people haha

    Also- the mileage stated was with 3 adults in the car.

    Great pics. But couldn't you just take pictures of your car in your driveway, rather than drive out to Zion? ;-)

    Just got back from Zion National Park myself with the Prius C! I even got it to go about a mile into a state land to camp with some friends. Saved half of the gas we would have if we took their Rodeo or Explorer! 20190622_072329.jpeg
