Gen 2 Prius..short trips only?

Got my wife a used beater Gen 2 Prius since she works retail and gets called in sometimes only to work an hour. Commute is only 7 miles each direction with 2 traffic lights. I bought it on a whim so she could avoid getting her nicer vehicle dinged up in the parking lot while she isn't there. Now I am reading that the Prius won't get great gas mileage until it warms up. I know that applies to any car. Any way to increase fuel economy over a short trip like that? Is she better off with my Diesel ALH TDI for that short trip? It's got the nasty 01m automatic.

Thanks.
