In a prius. I found that the engine tries to warm up and runs quite a bit more then it needs to so I would put it in neutral to glide so there weren't any arrows on the screen. Pulse and glide is deff worth it in a Prius but the point is to accel and glide without any arrows, not worth it imo to try and use all electric assist all the time.

There are quite a few good guides online on proper pulse and glide techniques specifically for Prius's.

Driving the Prius normally = 55mpg, pulse and glide = 75 average

70 mpg or die modding
