New from Los Altos, California
I currently drive an 07 IS250 and Roadbike a lot

My girlfreind keeps making fun of me while driving her Prius, because she says she gets 50+ MPG. So, I joined this to see how I could improve my MPG driving my car, or even driving hers. However, I still beat her with my road bike. Unlimited MPG baby :p

If by roadbike you mean bicycle, then you would also have less emissions than her Prius as well.

( That is unless you eat lots of boiled eggs and cabbage :D , then your emissions will skyrocket.)

Welcome feng.

I'm sure you've looked here: 100+ hypermiling / ecodriving tips to increase gas mileage -

As for specific Prius tips, starting out I'd say for around town motoring your goal should be to maximize the amount of engine-off coasting you do. Pulse and glide is particularly easy to do in a Prius, and it can return amazing results in nice weather & traffic conditions.
