has any change been made that would lower the gas mileage from the 2007?
I was getting 54.5 mpg in my 2007 Prius and am now getting 50 mpg in my 2008... has anything changed? I am using the same driving techniques.
dont know of any,mabey you have a larger engine,or bigger tires on the 08.
Could also be that the '08 is not broken in yet. Gas mileage typically increases over time as the engine breaks in, topping out once everything is fully broken in, anywhere from 3,000-30,000 miles. After that it stays pretty much the same unless an outside factor like a bad spark plug, dirty air filter, etc. causes it to decrease. Give it time, you may see your '08 get the same MPG as your 07. I am not aware of any design changes that would affect this.
