    May was bad in comparison (post #694). I drove 2,276 miles and bought gas 3 times. MPG's of 62.7, 97.6, and 78.6. Little EV and mostly 70-75 mph roads.

    Note, the last time I bought gas was May 31st and it's now July 28th. I'm at 1/4 tank with 2,337.2 miles on this tank. Next fill up in August.:D

    Well I made my trip to Bakersfield, right at 300 miles, so used gasoline, which kicked me off the Eco Dashboard. Spent 7.5 hours driving in the worst possible traffic ever!!! I filled 'er up with 7.6 gallons (just past first click), at 4580 miles on this tank!! Just plain flippin' ridiculous!!! My efficiency was 7.2 miles/kWh after the return trip! I love my Prime!
    P.S. can't wait to Eco in August!

    Dang, that's a 40 mph average. 4,580 miles on one tank is amazing. Love the Prime.

    Early August has been very good to me. All sheeps and possible accessories, 39.8 mile range, 99% ECO scores, 9th place in ECO ranking, 4.66 trophies Silver status, and first place in the MPG ranking (but don't blink). 38.5 miles on EV estimate and 2,569.6 miles on this tank of gas.

    Amazing. How do you get 99/100. Best I’ve been able to do is 96/100. I’ve even seen a couple of people get a 100/100.

    96 is good, as you practice, go can get better. How? Accelerate smooth, level off at speed smoothly, and no sudden stops. You know, real life stops. ;)

    It kills me, I can get a 99 for both acceleration and driving, and then get tanked to a 73 just by braking a little oddly. The drive coach is a fickle master.

    Most of my problem I guess has been getting a sudden light change at an intersection and having to break harder than I wanted. That sure takes a big bite out of my eco score.

    Sadly, that's the only driving style you can have here with unsynchronized lights and crazy traffic! Best I get is 87 Eco.

    Well you may have noticed, Le PrimeSnail hasn't been on the road much, due to health complications. I hope you'll think kind thoughts til we get back on the road. Happy motoring to my fellow Primers, and other Prii owners!

    I did notice. Note, I was #1 for a whole three days last week and then I unexpectedly had to drive ~1,300 miles in two days. Life loves to throw curves when you least expect it. It did for me.

    I hope you're back in the saddle very soon.

    That happens to me a lot, too. Traffic lights around here are conveniently located over hills, around curves, or behind trees, when they're not triggered by cross traffic. And then there are all those pedestrians, wanting to cross the street. What's wrong with the side of the street they're already on?

    Nevertheless, I have just started using this app and I usually get 99/100. I wasn't even trying until the last couple of days. I just drive it like I used to drive the Gen2.

    This app sure seems to like my driving. Funny thing is, I've actually improved since I took these screenshots.

    You think I'm trying to pull the wool over your eyes?

    Truthfully, those aren't real sheep. They are wolves in disguise. They are about to howl at the Blue Moon. Then eat those oranges off the tree. Those are 100% genuine Wisconsin oranges BTW.
