Toyota Prius Gas Mileage (MPG)

Unlike other fuel economy surveys, TrueDelta's Real-World Gas Mileage Survey includes questions about how and where a car was driven. So you can get an idea of the Toyota Prius's real-world MPG based on how and where you drive a car.

What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Toyota Prius MPG

Toyota Prius Fuel Economy: Pros
Year Body/Powertrain Comment
2012 4dr Hatch 98-hp 1.8L I4 Hybrid CVT FWD This is the obvious number one reason to buy a Prius. Unlike Ford, Nissan and others who make hybrid vehicles, the Toyota usually came out ahead in MPG- even in the freezing cold winter of Minnesota. The mileage ranged from 42+ in the winter to well over 59-62 in the spring-fall. My best tank was 601 miles to a tank of regular Costco gas.
2011 4dr Hatch 98-hp 1.8L I4 Hybrid CVT FWD Fuel economy is excellent. Also, the car is very rromy with lots of leg room and can carry some pretty big cargo. I once had 7 people in it for 15 minutes, not recomended as it was reaaly slow and too heavy for its braking power. In 25,00 miles NOTHING has gone wrong or needed repair.
2011 4dr Hatch 98-hp 1.8L I4 Hybrid CVT FWD The gas mileage of the Prius is unbeatable. With the price of gas climing at the pump it was time to buy the Prius.
2011 4dr Hatch 98-hp 1.8L I4 Hybrid CVT FWD Great, a number one factor with high gas prices.
