Default 644 miles on my last tank!

I have had my Prius since early May. I keep learning how to get better economy out of it and I just got 644 miles on a tank, 10.5 gallons , 61 MPG. This car is so fun to own!!

That's awesome! What are some details of the type/conditions of driving? I'm sure the warmer temps of FL helps alot as well as the relative flat of the state?

Keep it up and spread the hybrid goodness.

Cheers,

Curt.

I only did the commute to work on this tank, about 20 miles each way, half at 55-60 MPH, half at 35-45 miles per hour. Some small hills but mostly flat and about 92-94 F. Learning to accelerate without the charge arrow going to the battery for P&G and using the electric motor only when the battery is more than half charged was my biggest improvement. Got 65 MPG indicated on the way to work this morning.
