2012 Toyota Prius C Long Term Road Test

2012 Toyota Prius C: Fuel Economy Update for January

February 4, 2013

2012 Toyota Prius C

During the Month of January, our long-term 2012 Toyota Prius C performed all the duties expected of a city car and not much else. Most of the miles logged were limited to our daily commutes and we averaged 41.34 mpg during the last two months. That's a good deal short of the EPA-estimated 50 mpg, but still nothing to scoff at, especially considering our heavier-than-normal feet on the gas pedal.

Worst Fill MPG: 29.0
Best Fill MPG: 56.2
Average Lifetime MPG: 44.7
EPA MPG Rating (City/Highway Combined): 50 mpg
Best Range: 422.8
Current Odometer: 10,725
