I recently bought a 2006 Prius and just love it. I'm getting a sense of how to "power drive" it, which often involves slowing down or at least coasting whenever possible. It has changed the way I drive. For one thing, I now actually abide by the speed limit. But this often peeves other drivers off, espcially on the highway. I do not drive excessively slow; I just drive the speed limit (which perhaps in So Cal counts as excessively slow).

For the veteran hybrid drivers out there: How do you personally maximize your MPG while avoiding road rage? Or am I the only one who has changed the way I drive?!

Thanks,
