Update after 5500 miles As I hoped, the overall gas mileage did seem to jump up after the 2000 mile mark. I don't understand why, but my driving did not change and the weather was only marginally different. My overall MPG now is 40 (over the past 2500 miles), with some drives yielding 50+ MPG and some 36+ MPG, depending on various factors, like head wind, rate of acceleration, top speed, etc. My typical commute is 56 miles each way, with about 85% of that on a major highway. When I drive 75+MPH, the MPG obviously goes down and that's when I average around 38 MPG. When I take a different route where the speed limit is 60, set the cruise on 62 MPH, I drift in and out of EV mode, and my drive home yields about 44 MPG, which I'm very happy with. I do know, from having had the original Prius, that there are techniques to driving a hybrid and that you can usually finagle more MPGs out of a hybrid with careful driving, but as they say: "Your mileage may vary." :-)Report it
