Asked by Jan 12, 2015 at 09:55 PM about the Toyota Prius

Question type: General

1 Answer

I have 2 Prius, 2008 and 2013, you cannot go by just 1 tang of gas for your mpgs but the Prius does not do as good in cold weather and wet conditions. I mostly get 55+ on my 08 but I drive easy and I do not have to go on interstate hwys but a little. Keep up with it and it should stay close to the 50 mpgs unless you drive it hard and in a lot of bad weather. If it stays in the 35 mpg range on multiple tanks then you need to talk with a Toyota service center. Good luck!!!
