Answer to MPG dream
By pablo50 on
2012 Toyota Prius c One 4dr Hatchback (1.5L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
This review will be only for someone looking for excellent MPG!
I drive 1,350 miles a week. 5,400 miles a month. (Every month - IC Courier). I've had the car for 6 months, 22 days.
It has consistantly averaged 51.3 mpg. ECO Mode gives you the best results in city. Regular mode (not ECO) gives best results on freeway. My best has been 59.1 in city driving, 47.8 on freeway.
I owned a 2011 Corolla before this and at best only averaged 30 mpg. I drive 50% city, 50% freeway. I am saving $311.00 per month. Compared to the Corolla.
Wish I would have bought the car when it first hit the market! These are "real-life" results. Hope this helps.....
MPG....MPG.....MPG!!!!!!! Very comfortable to drive and love all the features.
Make the battery last longer!! I'll hit 100,000 within a year. Warranty only good for 8 years 100,000 miles. Great for "average" driver! LOL
