    Skylis A 2017 Prime Plug-in Advanced

    My username is the name of my car, it's a 2017 Prime plug-in hybrid. I came over here from PriusChat, because the PriusChat website keeps going down for hours or days at a time every week. Occasional site outages have been a longstanding issue with their site for the whole last few years that I've been there, but it's been a very frequent problem for the past month and is causing all of us frustration. I saw a recommendation to consider CleanMPG, so that is why I am here.

    Welcome Skylis A. This is a great forum. The founder, Wayne Gerdes, does some great in depth reviews of cars.

    Welcome, Skylis A! My wife drives one just like yours. Not quite Volt-like in its avoidance of using gas, but pretty good nevertheless. We just filled up after an 1100-1200 mile tank. Could do better if we actually tried. :)

    Welcome!

    I've been frustrated with PriusChat, too. It used to be useful and interesting. After September 2015, it wouldn't let me download attachments. After September 2016, it hasn't let me log on at all from home or from my mother's computer, so occasionally I travel to a library to see it. Yesterday I tried at the library, only to be greeted with a jumbled format of two pages superimposed on each other, and a "data base error" warning when I tried to click to others.

    Nice. I was able to go about 910 miles on mine but had to get a few more gallons in prep. for a road trip. Lifetime fuel economy so far is 104 mpg according to the computer. Pure highway fuel economy at 60-65 mph is 55 mpg (computer tends to read high, so, maybe 53 mpg, which matches EPA).

    Exactly. It's happening again today, and my guess is that it'll be another all-day thing. I wonder how many others from PriusChat will find their way here to populate CleanMPG.

    I suspect there are many dual-readers from long ago. I never did get to PriusChat much and I don't think I ever posted. It was just the most logical place to find Prius-specific lore.

    I'm a member at PriusChat , but I seldom go there. It's full of people high-fiving themselves for getting 50 MPG.

    50 MPG , depending of course on variables like temperature , length of trip , etc. is as easy as falling off a log.

    There IS some useful info there , but you sometimes gave to dig to get it.
