    Not yet that we know of. I doubt that you could drive the car like a real car and obtain Gold. If you could drive it daily on a test track for a few months, perhaps.

    Does 4.2 miles count? I have to say, holding my breath today did help quite a bit during the attempt. :p:D

    I didn’t take one of that as I just took one using this door for the first time:

    And this is what the first tank yielded:

    So far, so good(y).

    Finding the button for the fuel door was a challenge too:cool:.

    But I figured it was somewhere there;).

    Glad I’ll only have to use it about once a month(y).

    Don’t get me started on ECO Status Gold. I say Toyota coded Entune Eco Dashboard so that you can not get ECO Status Gold. My wife has a 14.6 mile round trip daily commute with some freeway, parkway and surface streets. She was able to drive during the brutal Syracuse NY winter in EV mostly, down to 10 degrees Fahrenheit (and once at 5F) with AC Auto set to 66 on windshield and floor. She managed top percentile in both Fuel Consumption (top 999.9 MPG) and Eco Driving Score July 2018 through January 2019. That is 7 consecutive and complete months and still no Eco Status Gold. I have called and emailed Toyota three times and they can not / will not tell me what triggers Eco Status Gold. I have given up on Toyota USA and don’t know how to contact Toyota Japan. instead I have turned to PriusChat and stated; It is impossible to obtain/trigger Eco Status Gold ... Prove me wrong!

    Chazz, where is your rainbow? You probably know there is a trick to get it back sooner the beginning of each month. Nice driving scores by the way.

    Didja send in the $1000 check?!
    We have ways to make you.....win!! Har, har!!
    You have to drive your Prime in reverse at the Cape of Good Hope, on an odd numbered leap year at midnight, in a snowstorm, under a full moon (yeah, it must be visible), while holding your breath, and shifting in and out of "B", chomping on a glazed doughnut, with 1 eye closed. IT COULD HAPPEN!!

    Yes, I would pay for a Toyota loot box with Eco Status Gold inside. Maybe not anymore after an entune update showed me what that would most likely look like, just before data is loaded an takes it away. It is just adding flowers to the grass next to the road and full bloom tulips.

    Yes I know. Here is my updated Eco Dashboard trigger explanation graphic. Still a little fuzzy regarding one/two tulips next to tree.

    Enjoy.

    Chazz, on the photo above without all the explanation, what am I seeing that looks like blossoms in the grass. I’ve never seen that on my echo dashboard. Thx, Ben

    This was shown for a couple of seconds on my IPad while loading data. A subsequent app update put the Loading sign back over the middle of the screen. I can still see the tulip full blossoms to the right of the loading sign and a flash of the grass blossoms before the loading sign appears.

    Here is a better picture. Notice the tulips in full bloom and the grass blossoms.

    Thanks for the commented image. I have 2 sheep today, bushes and trees and a sun. No oranges or blossoms. Fuel consumption for the month is 147.6 MPG so now I know that the second sheep comes at 140 MPG. And since I've only had the car since the end of February, I can stop looking for flowers in the grass. But to get the rainbow all you have to do is check the ECO dashboard a lot?

    The only way I'll get oranges or blossoms is to look early in the month before my weekly trip that is only half EV. After that there are plenty of people with much better mileage.

    Got gas today since I was at 1/4 tank and was at the station getting gas for the riding mower. Thursday is $0.05 off per gallon day in town. 813.7 miles at 104.4 MPG. The first 230 miles was coming back from Maine at 64 MPG.

    Hmmm, I went nowhere today and I have orange blossoms on the tree. Don't see how I could have moved into the top 40 unless a lot of people above me drove today and weren't real efficient.

    Two sheep, lots of trees, orange blossoms and a rainbow today. Of course the rainbow isn't real impressive since it is only based on how often you check the dashboard.

    I reset something and the ODO MPG got reset :( That one should never be reset, just like the odo can't be reset. Now if I want to know my lifetime I can't use Trip B for anything other than that.

    Read it, and weep, kids!
    Now I have to cycle through a day or 2 and get the rainbow etc., and I'll be all set!! To be continued... Screenshot_20190601-072923_Toyota%20Entune.jpeg

    No weeping please. I opened a case with Toyota Entune support last October about it being impossible to get gold status in the ECO dashboard.... It took months and months of backs and forth with a very helpful customer service agent who eventually convinced the Entune app and database developers they had a bug and finally lead to them fixing it last April. Now if you are in the top 10% (I think it's 10%) for 3 months you'll get gold status. I saw mine this morning. So HPrimeAdvanced, you're welcome and so are any of us who actually care.
