    Hi -- Just wanted to say "hello." I just bought a 2007 Prius, pkg 3, Seaside Pearl. Have about 700 miles on it and love it. Right now averaging 50.2mpg and that's just around town. I'm hoping after it's broken in I'll be getting better mileage. Will be taking a 1000 mile trip next week -- will be anxious to see how it does on the interstates. We'll be heading to SW Florida at the end of September. Thanks for this great web site -- I hope to learn a lot of "hypermiling" tricks from you experts out there. :)

    Welcome to CleanMPG! Excellent choice of color for your car.;) I just got back from a 435 mile round trip this past Saturday and got 64.9 mpg. I should add that I drove 50-55 and didn't use the A/C though. My best tank around home was 76.1 so far and the current tank is at 81.4 after 190 miles. There is a bunch of reading on the site so enjoy!
