This is what you get when you drive a 2010 Toyota Prius.

The Efficiency of the 2010 Prius-prius-2010.jpg

Not bad at all. Very efficient, and don't be mislead by avg mpg. I also don't understand why people want fast cars or want to drive fast. Is it really worth risking your life to get someplace one or two minutes early? It is so funny when I see these cars cut me off when we are going in the same direction and only minutes later the car just passed me is stuck behind another vehicle in the other lane while a pass them. Did you also notice that most owners of hybrids tend to be better drivers on the road as well?

I encourage most of you to go green.

Didn't you already have a thread or two removed for being rabidly stupid about the Prius POS?

OK you got 50MPG. How many people did you carry that distance? I normally carry 6 people in my vehicle and get 24 MPG doing it (at 70 MPH, not the 24 MPH you averaged in your photo). In other words I am much more efficient at moving people than the average Prius I see driving down the road with one or two people in it. If I am only going to carry myself and one other person I take my little old, cheap and paid for Geo Metro that gets 52 MPG in town. Plus I don't have to worry about how the battery packs will be handled when they go bad in a few years.

Yes, I meant rabidly stupid. I think the OP's last couple threads about the Prius would fall under the 3rd definition.

3. Extremely zealous or enthusiastic; fanatical: a rabid football fan.
