    Last summer, I tried to maximize my MPG on a short road trip. I drove from Redlands, CA to Palm Desert on I10...approx 60 miles. I put the Cat in ECO mode and drove at the speed limit. Drop in elevation from start to finish was about 1500 feet. I achieved a 28.5MPG. Yesterday, I did the same route and wanted to see if the HC could do 30MPG. In ECO mode and I really was light on the pedal. Got a 30.5 MPG.:D:D DSCN1173.JPG Of course, on the way home...driving normal...I got around 18 MPG.

    I know...its kind of a different approach to HC ownership. Usually avg about 12MPG between fill-ups. Just wanted to see if 30MPG was do-able. It also shows how incredible this car really is.;)

    Unbelievable that a car with such lofty performance can also be used in a tame fashion to achieve the same MPG I get in my boring Honda CRV!!!

    It really gives rediculously high mileage going downhill!
    The HP and torque read outs match the weenie numbers!
    Fun to play with this computer on wheels this way.

    I figured it would do it. I will be making a trip in March to Hampstead, NC 500 miles one way.
    Will try to get my wife to drive it, so I know I will be using the speed limit and cruise control. If I got 23.7 with it
    already, I figured a 30 was not out of touch.

    Good for you.

    That bucket I see in your AV looks cool to drive around in.

    I normally don't do this. Nearly all the posts on this forum relate to the HC's incredible power and acceleration. Just thought I would mix it up a bit and take it to the other "extreme". I "milked out" the best MPG I could. Please feel free to use my mileage example the next time any Prius owners get "yappy".:p:p

    Amazing Snappy. I know why you did it. Because you could (like why climb a mountain? Because it's there)

    The fact that you could milk 30+ MPG outta the CAT just goes to show what an incredible machine this really is and how special it is to own and experience it.

    Prius be damned....:eek::D

    I was just having fun with you. o_O It's pretty amazing that a 707HP car can put achieve anything even close to 30MPG. Great engineering and efficient computer controls!
