One of us drives like a hooligan.
And still averages almost 40mpg! That number doesnít tell the whole story. I can say that my car gets 19mpg highway (which it can) and people would assume itís either badly engineered or badly broken, but I only get such bad mileage when averaging 100mph, which gives the context of the mileage...

Your Prius is doing great for what you ask of it!

A good point. There are a number of differences between the Touring and other trims which include wheels (larger, heavier, lower profile, different rubber) and overall vehicle weight (+100lbs or so).

I expect it's mostly due to tires.

I saw my first Corolla hybrid in the wild recently - I think it's a new addition in my parents' neighbourhood.
