What Our Members Are Saying about the Real Gas Mileage of the 2012 Toyota Prius

2012 Toyota Prius Real Gas Mileage: Pros
YearBody/PowertrainComment
2012 4dr Hatch 98-horsepower 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. see full Toyota Prius review

Great, a number one factor with high gas prices. see full Toyota Prius review

The gas mileage of the Prius is unbeatable. With the price of gas climing at the pump it was time to buy the Prius. see full Toyota Prius review

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. see full Toyota Prius review
