___Welcome to CleanMPG and I am sure your FE will pick up handily after a few hours here! That is why we are all here for the most part
___As for the Chicago to NY -- Prius highway challenge … Near the finish, I was sitting at 10.9 gallons consumed (love that X-Gauge
), 2 pips still showing, 71.3 mpg per the SG-II and 71.0 on the MFD while staring at the NY City skyline just across the river. I was asked to pull over and wait at the George Washington Bridge while a film crew arrived to vid the drive into Manhattan which took over an hour to arrive
At fillup two days later in downtown, after at least 10 reboots and multiple cold starts from the parking garage guys, the final numbers were 69.95 mpg per the actual odo and fill, 70.3 per the SG-II and 70.1 per the MFD IIRC.
___Donee, for the fill up, I carried all my fuel in gasoline containers while I almost ran the Prius dry. I specifically asked that A&M not fill after its drive in form MI the day before and I drove another 45 miles into downtown from my home so I had just 1 pip showing. From the parking garage early that morning before heading to my hotel room, I topped her off with the containers. I then drove to the Adler Planetarium that morning and topped her off 3 times while bringing her up to 171 degrees (a little buffer above 157/159 for any long glides around downtown) coolant temp and verifying I was in S4 before the CBS people sealed up the tank and I launched.
