When I got passed by flying Prii in the past I used to think 'My Nissan uses less fuel than your Prius'.
Now that I know them better, I'm not sure that was true. You get decent economy in a Prius even at speed. Not great, but probably better than my struggling old Nissan driving slow.
No doubt the 4th gen does even better.

Nowadays as I drive my Insight it is no contest - if you speed you lose
2011 Honda Insight + HID, LEDs, tiny PV panel, extra brake pad return springs, neutral wheel alignment, 44/42 PSI (air), PHEV light (inop), tightened wheel nut.
lifetime FE over 0.16 Gmeter or 0.1 Mmile.

Most people are in the longest queue.
