The EPA estimates and manufacturers' are a good barometer BUT, what MPG/MPL did you really get on your last tank of fuel?

20.3 MPG over 186.9 miles with a Ford Ranger FX4 w/4.0L V-6, 5-spd manual and 4WD. The city driving share was 52.4%, highway driving was 47.6%. Gas used was standard E10.

The EPA expectation is 15.427 MPG so I got 131.7% of the EPA 2008 revised estimate.

on a Subaru crosstrek, 25.9, a mix of the worst kind of local, cold-weather driving with two interstate runs... timed it to make most of $2.40 in gas points on the bonus card, gassed up at $0.999 (correct) which my trip calculator refused to acknowledge, had to settle for $1.09

50.167 mpg, over 498.5 miles using 9.937 gallons of 87 octane E10 RFG
from 2/21/15 to 3/06/15 in the Washington DC-Baltimore Metro Area.
driving a 2010 Toyota Prius III
100% grill blocking, Yokohama Avid s33d Tires set to 44/40 psi.
my fuel efficiency is normally higher than this
for this time of the year but its been unusally cold this
winter with back to back snow days.
Still most Prius drivers will notice my MPG
is higher than what most drivers will get on a Prius
This is because I'm hypermiling
my Prius using a ScangaugeII and the HSI display.

@reb4... two modest proposal ...
===============================

(1)

IF you have only a one mile one way commute AND
you have a garage with an electrical outlet AND
electricity is not too costly AND
you are considering another vehicle
THEN
considered a used 2010 Nissan Leaf
whose price has dropped to less than 1/3 its new price

A Nissan Leaf gets from 3.5 to 6.5 miles per kilowatt/hour of charge
Reportedly a Nissan Leaf gets about 65 to 85 miles/full charge
with lower energy efficiency occuring during the winter time.
.


(2)

IF you have a Prius that you still want to drive in short trip AND
you want to increase your Prius' fuel efficiency for short trips AND
you have 45 minutes to prepare your Prius before a short trip AND
the Prius is in a garage with an electrical outlet
THEN
you can install a Toyota OE
400W engine block heater (EBH) in your Prius.
Preheating the Prius with a EBH for 45 minutes in your garage
before starting each short trip
will increase your fuel efficiency dramatically.
Toyota's EBH are marketed to our friends up north but it sounds
like you might be able to use it too. :-)

Dreyden, nice... I've been stuck at 33. Unfortunately using 2010 Prius for commuter to tran station.. about a mile commute (hey, it's cold and snow) and many times driving with my wife...Just got gas and noticed my tires are low... so will check that out tonight...

I would be perfect candidate for plug-in for my commute... :-)

litesong sez...
Back in the 80's people would brag about their mpg from their cheap cars. Now, they brag about their mpg from their expensive cars. The auto manufacturers covered the "mpg/auto cost gap"!

** Must be different in other area's...
In 1979 I bought and drove off the showroom floor... A new Corvette, gas mileage maybe 14 on a good day. Car cost...$15000.00 Gas was under a buck !!!
Then in 1980 I added a 1980 Trans-Am to the stables for an additional $9,000.00

Point being... They were not considered "Cheap" cars.

35 years later I'm driving a VW TDI $25,000.00 new...With all things being considered.... I was driving a lot more expensive vehicles in the 80's than I am now, paying a lot less for gas.

Maybe I don't fully understand the definition of "Cheap or Expensive"

A new Prius can cost $30,000.00....A used Mercedes can also sell for $30,000.00
Which is cheap and which is expensive? Of course there are those that are stuck in the 70's looking for $5,000.00 cars.

Only 30.2 last tank, supposed to get 27/38. But it's winter and Inwarm up the car with remote starter, so that's to be expected.
