2012 Toyota Prius C: 15,000-Mile Update

2012 Toyota Prius C

Seems that time has been flying in our long-term 2012 Toyota Prius C. So much so that the 15,000-mile benchmark whizzed by and we didn't even realize it.

It occurred somewhere along the dusty stretch of California Highway 395 as I made the obligatory trek back to visit Mom for Mother's Day. The round trip is roughly 340 miles, and the Prius returned 49.6 mpg. Not quite as good as the 51 it got driving around in the city, but impressive nonetheless.
