I remember someone on here recounting how he was at a gas station and a girl was bragging about her Prius' fuel economy, then asked the member what his "piece of junk" got. He had her look at his MPGuino or whatever and felt rather satisfied.

I actually had a tank that was below 30MPG in my Prius. 2 bikes on a rear rack, doing ~80MPH with hills and I think a decent headwind. That was also the only time it wasn't able to maintain the speed I wanted while going up a particularly long and steep hill. Battery was drained from going up previous hills and even though I had the cruise set at ~80MPH, the speed slowly started to drop. I wonder how other cars would fare when pushed to their equivalent limit. I've had it at or near redline for minutes at a time going up hills, never any problems.

Just increased tire pressure and an upper grill block.

I've experienced the uphill on a drained battery going up to Big Bear. All these bros with their lifted trucks were not pleased, " I'm trying guys!
