Re: Pulse and Glide plus Warp Stealth in the Prius II for maximum FE …

Hi,

I'm a new member to the forum, hypermiling and Prius III ownership. What a great resource this site and some others have been. Looking forward to contributing as I learn & experiment.

Have been trying various techniques. With 4k on my 2010. For the last 1k am averaging 62.6 mpg. Have all tires at 44, what is the reason for suggested difference between front and back pressure?

Front heavy cars need extra pressure on the front tire.

Re: Pulse and Glide plus Warp Stealth in the Prius II for maximum FE …

I dont know if it was luck or not, but after reading this article last night I left for the gym. The battery's charge was pretty low and the engine was cool. I drove the Fusion 1.9miles to the gym at about 40mph. I was not able to get it into EV mode but it charged up the battery pretty good. The trip to the gym was about 31mpg. After spending 2 hrs at the gym I left for home, the engine had cooled down alot but the battery was charged up pretty good. I got the Fusion up to 40mph and then started my glide, It took me a few seconds to adjust the accelerator into the happy spot where there is no regen or use of the battery. Of the 1.9 miles home, I able to go the final 1.2 miles using no gas. I got 74mpg on the trip home. Maybe it was a fluke or good luck, but the 74mpg (my previous best on the home from the gym was 63mpg) has motivated me to continue trying the P&G method. The article was very informative and was very easy to understand. Xcel, can you direct me to other articles such as this? Plenty of info but easy for a hybrid beginner to understand? The "Beating the EPA" link on the home page is good starting point, but now I wanting more!

Re: Pulse and Glide plus Warp Stealth in the Prius II for maximum FE …

It definitely wasn't luck; there's a lot more available with some practice if the Fusion is anything at all like the Prius. I drove to our county fair today with all 4 of us in the Prius and all I really did was P&G from 40-30 mph and glide up to corners with stops and I was able to get just over 83 mpg on the 15 mile or so trip on mostly country roads. I probably could have squeezed 90+ out if I had tried real hard but I was happy with what I got since the last mile or less was stop and go getting into the fairgrounds.

Re: Pulse and Glide plus Warp Stealth in the Prius II for maximum FE …

Thanks guys. I tried it again on my trip to the gym today. I got 65mpg on the way home from the gym. It could have been higher but I had to stop at a traffic light. The previous best of 63mpg mentioned above was without stopping at any lights. I will see what I can do on my drive to/from work tomorrow.

Re: Pulse and Glide plus Warp Stealth in the Prius II for maximum FE …

I'd love to see a write-up on this technique in a gasoline-engine vehicle, such as mine. I currently do not use P&G for two reasons: 1) crazy drivers, 2) lack of knowledge about how to perform the technique successfully in a combustion engine.
