Re: fuel economy
That's just crazy talk. It's true enough for 1 fill-up, but all those effects will negate each other over time... After 23 tanks, I've installed a total of 5.28 gallons more fuel into my Prius than the MFD says I've used... If the MFD is so accurate, where did all that fuel go?An04Prius said:Toyota web site says traditional mpg calculaton (miles driven /gals pumped) is inaccurate for Prius, due to effects of things many of you have already noted...bladder effect, temp on bladder effect, varying pump rates effect on bladder. They say to use the MFD reading.
