My guess was that pulse and glide in a prius is not "AS" beneficial as in a normal engine only vehicle since the engine is essentially shutting off after depressing the brake pedal and switching to battery power anyway.

I use P&G in my 4runner and obviously the benefits greatly impact my mpg but I'll have to do some more reading on the prius to see what benefits, if any, there are for doing it in the prius.

Please keep the responses coming as I'm trying to help a friend with this thread! Thanks!
