(first posted 1/8/2013. A lot has changed in ten years.)      Let’s see, the average real-world fuel consumption of a Prius is about 44 mpg. So three of them would get 14.7 mpg. No; that’s not good enough…we need one more…

Bingo! Stand on a street corner in Eugene for more than 30 seconds, and one is bound to come along. So four Prii: that makes for a combined consumption of 11 mpg, just about right for the Mark V; on a good day, that is.
