    Toyota Prius mpg highway/city for NE Ohio

    Hi everyone, I am a senior in college and am writing my senior thesis on hybrid cars for my environmental studies degree. I need to calculate the average highway vs. city driving distance (for each on average) and mpg as part of this project. I was wondering if anyone could help point me to a source or provide me with relevant information. Thanks for the help!

    Mileage has a lot of

    Mileage has a lot of variables associated with it, especially hybrids: tire pressure, air filter cleanliness, ethanol/nonethanol gas, weather, AC on or off, heater on or off, and driving techniques.

    The most "consistent" numbers you can get are EPA mileage numbers. They use a standard course and presumably a standard driving environment and driving techniques.
