IS this going to be your daily driver now and what happened to the Saturn? You're really going to have fun with it. I see you're going to get a block heater that a must where you live if you want good mileage with it. Congrats and enjoy the ride.

I picked it up yesterday. I've had a pretty good day today with it. I averaged 65.1 since I topped it off today. The dealer didn't get it "full" and I wanted an accurate reading. One of my segments today was 5.3 miles long and I managed to get a 98.4 mpg from it. That hybrid battery is pretty cool for extending those glides just a tad and not letting the mpg drop while I'm backing it in the garage.

The Saturn is fine but my wife's work is planning on moving sometime this summer which would take my daily work commute from 31 miles to 68 miles. I can get the kind of mpg I was getting in my Saturn with about half the effort. Of course, I'll still put the same effort into the Prius so I'll probably end up with some really stupid high mpg numbers.

I sent a PM to "The Commish" to ask him how to proceed. I'm supposed to take over for Darin as our team captain becuase he is going to take a breather. It would be too cool if I was the captain and couldn't compete.

If that's what you want to use as the daily driver just make your base fill and then get at least another 3 gallon fill by the end of the cycle.

Actually, for the price I paid, I'm going to drive it like I bought it.
