    I will trade you my Gen4, for your red Mazda SUV. ;)

    (and I was just joking about driving like Mad Max. Just a little brisk, or I get run over, here in Tinseltown.)

    My meager gas mileage is in the Minor Leagues!

    You guys need to check out krmcg's Fuel log.

    FWIW I get about 42 mpg on my CT200h F Sport. w/ non eco tires and stock F Sport wheels.

    on the very low end 38. this is per the car's built in tank average readout. Current tank about 42.8 mpg. i'm happy with that.

    60 mile trip all highway, I can get 50mpg on the readout. Which translates to about 48.5 actual.

    As said though, short trips, or a lot of stop and go will eat your gas. takes a lot of energy to take a 3,000+ lb object from a standstill to speed.

    After 15,000 miles mileage, the combined city/highway sometime displays 78 mpg , I am seeing EV mode upto 70-75mph. In ECO mode prius - 4 Touring.

    I remember Consumers Report saying the Gen 4 Prius will only run in EV mode till 25 mph, I just laughed.
    I wonder if they have any experienced Prius owners?
