Prius highway rpm?

Anyone know what the average rpm of the Prius engine is at say, 50, 55, 60, and 65mph?

Typically it is in the 1500-1800 at startup the lowest about 900 and around 4000 on hard acceleration in the low speed range (20mph) I didn't spend much time on the highway during my test drive but somewhere in the 3000rpm at 60mph I think because it really doesn't have a lot of gearing and the electric motor is limited in its rpm upper limit. If I get to go for another ride with the SG connected I will make a note of it.

Seems like it is hard for me to keep the battery charged - about right from when I droved the 2005 model.

based off the 1st gen prius in japan (97-00)... boy i still crave for that model (classic prius 01-03 that is)... pulsing and gliding on that simluator nets me a 74.5 mpg trip. If anyone can beat my score feel free! Oh and my battery charge is 50% by the way, didn't have to force charge once! and its over 3.9 miles

I don't get the coasting mode in the simulator that I can actually do on the real car where with the right amount of gas input you don't use any gasoline or electric and the car just coasts.

I'm up to 75mi @ 57.1mpg. My computer hasn't had much to do today so it's taking a road trip .

Based on how this thing behaves, I'm pretty sure it's a THS simulator and not HSD.

There seems to be a speed where it gets the best gas mileage like around 45mph at about 60mpg and the battery charges up to 80%
