    When it was below freezing, I recall gliding without the wheels rotating, usually unintentionally.

    That has happened to me.

    Today , in the Prius. Despite a fair amount of snow melting yesterday , I
    got stuck in the driveway. I had plenty of momentum , but I missed the snowbank
    by a good three tire widths (12") , and had to do a little digging. I'm not firing on
    all cylinders at 4:00 AM. Also , it's difficult to see out of the Prius when backing up.

    38 deg F in Elk Grove , and a nice tailwind all the way ! 35.1 miles ,
    fcd = 61.6 x .943 = 58.1 MPG. Not summer or even spring numbers , but
    better than a poke in the eye with a sharp stick. Taking the scenic route home ,
    so I expect 65-67 fcd.

    Last night, motorway route, 59°F:
    49.5 / 21.4 - pretty good for a home run, a slow driver behind me (40 in a 50psl) meant I could do loads of long glides on the final section before home.

    To work this morning, motorway route, 43°F:
    48.7 / 21.7

    Tank up 0.3 at 45.9 (FCD 48.4) / 345.1 / Range 290 . Guess gauge F___«|««««E . UG up 0.3 at 45.9 / DTE 317

    97 miles remaining on this tank. Probably enough to
    go to work Tuesday then drop the car at my mechanic afterwards.
