    2013 Prius v Five
    85k miles (80% hwy/20% city)
    36.7 mpg lifetime
    Granted, highway miles don't help my mpg, but I've not been impressed with my Barcelona red "v" mpgs since I drove it home on day one. I've run Michelin Primacy tires the past 50k miles, since the OEM tires pooped out around 35k. I drive 70-75 mph on the highway and have the tires at 42 psi front and 40 psi rear.

    We've seen in the range of 40-42 mpg with our 2012 v Five at 42F/40R psi, and 40.6 mpg lifetime, on a mix of 30% 70-75 mph on I-95 and 70% local/city driving.
