2012 Toyota Prius C: Fuel Economy Update for April
May 2, 2013
Most months we struggle to accumulate miles on our long-term Toyota Prius C. This car is built for city use. And in the city, you just don't cover the sort of ground possible on the open highway. This month was somewhat of an exception.
We made a point to send the Prius C on some longer trips, totaling over 1,200 miles. As expected, it returned good fuel mileage, but not enough to match the best lifetime single tank of 56.2 mpg.
Worst Fill MPG: 29.0
Best Fill MPG: 56.2
Average Lifetime MPG: 44.8
EPA MPG Rating (City/Highway/Combined): 46/53/50
Best Range: 473.7 miles
Current Odometer: 14,706
