Just recently i have bought Prius 1.8 Model 2011 from someone in Karachi who was the first owner of the vehilce and was driving it since 9 months. Car has a genuine mileage of 85K on the meter.
Since i am a new driver of Prius i would like to ask you guys the best way to drive this vehicle in order to get max mileage.
Currently my car is showing an average of 18.5km/ ltr on screen and this is the best average i have got so far. (when i bought the car it was showing average of 22km on screen while it never reaches above 18.5 when i drive)
I try to be within ECO line as much as possible with ECO Mode On (as adviced by the previous owner) and i drive with light foot but i have a concern that if you drive the car on battery mostly, the battery does not get charged sufficiently and as a result car engines turns on to help charge the battery. This reduces the average per ltr to great extend and all the efforts you did to save the fuel goes in vain. Does this happens with you guys? am i doing something wrong here? I have heared you get more than 22 KM easily.
I request the experts to comment here.
