    New '07 Prius - How do I maximize the MPG?

    I just took delivery of my new '07 Prius last night!! How do I maximize my gas mileage? I understand that slow braking will help. Is that correct? What else? I've heard the term "pulse and glide". What is that?

    Also, are there are other good reference sites that I should check out?

    Thank you!

    My suggestion is let it coast as much as possible=my interpretation of pulse and glide. Also, if you are going slow, <30 mph, just barely touch the gas to keep power going to the electric motor and prolong the time before the engine kicks in.
