#2 of 674 First Fill-up
Apr 29, 2005 (1:24 pm)
I just filled up my new 2005 for the first time today. What a deal. I got 54.5 mpg on with almost 50/50 city/highway driving. The biggest difference for me with this the "Prius" is that it has helped me do a 180 with my driving style. I am a notorius lead foot, tailgater, multi-lane changing driver. Playing the "how many mpg can i get today" game has really made me a safer driver and greatly reduced my chances of getting a speeding ticket. Did I mention the 54.5 mpg on my first tank?

"Did I mention the 54.5 mpg on my first tank?"
Was that calculated from miles driven vs. Gallons used, or off of the MFD as calculated by the trip computer?

That was miles drives divided by gallons pumped into the gas tank. Acceleration and braking must by done very gently to achieve these results. A lot of coasting down hill. It does take some getting used to, but it is fun challenge and well worth the time.

#8 of 674 Not Your Typical Prius Owner

I love my new Prius. I'm definately not your typical Prius owner: I hate NPR, I can't stand Hollywood, I don't wear Birkenstocks, I voted for Bush (twice)and I never eat tofu! But wow, what a technological marvel this car is! You have to wonder how good the third generation Prius will be.

Hopefully, a third generation PRIUS will perform better and be less dangerous than a third generation BUSH.

Thanks to Bush's Energy Policy Act of 2005, the hybrid tax credits are now in effect and hybrids are affordable to folks like me. Most Democrats opposed this bill. I'll grant you that he's a pretty bad president, but at least he got this through. It's also ironic that he's taking the heat for high gas prices when every time he proposes to go after new sources of oil, the Democrats oppose him.
