I noticed something today: if you run the heat, the Prius' FE drops. I don't think it's because the fan is drawing amperage (although that may be part of it) -- but that it keeps the engine running to heat up the coolant.

So far, I'm averaging 59.4mpg. I'm going to add some zigzag tape, and see how that goes.
Sincerely, Neil
