Picked up new Prius c today.

It's a Black Sand Pearl level 3. Took a forty mile drive of mixed urban, suburban and freeway this evening. Averaged 56.1 mpg for the trip per the display. Promising.

Cool! It will be good to see how accurate the factory MPG gauge is. What are you thinking about for your first aero mod?

I just got my ScanGauge II back from being upgraded, so I'll be mounting it. I have some Moon spun aluminum discs coming. First true mod will probably be a lower grille block. I'm looking forward to some lowering spring options. I haven't driven a stock height vehicle in about fifty years. Who knows, I've got a few ideas I'll share as they come on line.

All the best,

What was the price for the level 3? 56 mpg is an excellent first tank. It might get even better now that the engine is broken in.

It would be great if you guys could make fuel logs in the garage so everyone can see how good these new cars are.
