Mehbe toyota is scared of people doing what many did by saying "my prius only gets 45 mpg what!?!?" And therefore tries to tell them a good/bad without the numbers, which are a little less subjective...

Lessons were minimal. He let me drive and observed. When we were done, he said: "I could never drive like that. I'd go crazy." or something to that effect

I'm hoping the bro in-law just overlooked the "trip" FE feature in the manual. It seems like such a big oversight.

That's the way the Prius is. You have FE display but once you reset it that's it you lose the tank average

Also, no lifetime MPG like the Insight has. Had. Whatever.

The Camry hybrid is VERY difficult to get into a glide compared to my Prius. Seems to be a common "fault".

Talked to the bro in-law today: He says he's been pegging the eco-meter on almost every drive since I last saw him.

He said the scale stops around 5.8 L/100 km, which means he's doing around 41 mpg (US) or better. And this is on the car's first tank of gas. The tires aren't even pumped up.

I was thinking that tires might be one of the big differences as far as getting the car to glide/deadband. Maybe with some extra air it would be easier.

Spent about half an hour in the Camry today. My bro in-law found a nearly ideal "ring road" in a commercial area in Ottawa that permitted almost unmolested driving at P&G speeds.

We were able to squeeze 78.9 mpg (US) on this route from a warmed up car.
