Even when you think you're driving normal again for a while, you'll get better than your usual fuel consumption before joining ecomodder

With over 50 mpg from a petrol engine, you've already earned those bragging rights

I rented a gen 3 Prius in California to drive my brother, sister, and my Mom and I drove it 182 miles in 3 1/2 days and I used 2.782 gallons of gasoline. That is 65.4MPG in California traffic with 4 tall adults, with luggage from and to the airport.

Not bad, if I say so myself.

If we could have rented a Leaf, we would have doubled that...

Consider the circumstances

On trip to California averaged 17.4 mpg (on the way out) towing a 3500# travel trailer with my Doublecab LWB Tacoma.

Took a trip to my grandparents' house this year:

Last year's records:
45.88 to,
46.75 from.

This year's records:
45.3 to,
50.1 from.

And I did this with an extra passenger and her luggage, too. I feel pretty proud of that.

My car was doing 25 (indicated) mpg when I first bought it. It was more of a limited edition track day hatch. I went through Autospeed.com that gave me the idea for a secondary intake. I bought a washing machine hose, cut it for right length, stuck it under the light cluster. The factory installed FC computer got it down to 67 (indicated)mpg on a flat straight road. Now I'm doing 44 (indicated) mpg Extra Urban on a daily basis. But the fun factor is still around as it doesn't hurt throwing this 145bhp, 2645lbs round the bends.

I keep saying (indicated) coz that's what the FC comp says. I've done a 330km trip with about 49mpg when it indicated I was doing 56.

First time over 30 mpg. Trip going and returning with most of the trip across Texas on I-10 going the limit of 75-80 mph. The two legs are broken into two parts because of fill-ups.
Going: 25.97 mpg
26.55 mpg
26.16 mpg average
Return: 30.61 mpg
29.66 mpg
30.135 mpg average
It's probably obvious that the return was wind aided, but the going was still above EPA of 25 mpg highway. Coming back would have been a 400+ mile tank (16 gal) with no problem. Yes I did some coasting through the hill country, but most of the trip was very flat, so constant throttle was the only way to go.

Cool

Got the 3 computer updates to my insight for the cvt, ima and something else. It was free under the 8 year 80 thousand mile warranty.

I went from 34 mpg to 42. Yeah, I get 34 cause I do a lot of stuff that you shouldnt. When I take my sidekick out it gets 23, but otherwise nets 30mpg.

Thats a great feeling. When I installed and got my phev kit tuned on my insight I would go 175 miles before the needle moved off the full mark.
