Prius Mileage - 1 Year Later

We took a 1-week trip to Yosemite exactly a year after our first long road trip in the Prius. This time, we covered more miles because of a 78-mile roundtrip within the park, up to Tuolomne Meadows in the High Sierras. But having learned the tricks to squeezing out the MPG, the fuel efficiency was higher overall for the trip: 573 miles @ 49.3 MPG. (Last year's trip averaged 48.0 MPG.)
