Arbitrary Roman Empire based length milestone 3000

Yesterday I reached 3000 miles in the Prius. I still enjoy it and I am still getting around 45mpg. The tank is only 10 gallons or so but it is still a kicker when you put $40 of gas in at one shot. At least I don't do it as often.

Does anyone out there know if I get even more benefit than just high gas mileage due to the fact that the gas engine on the prius shuts down while I am stopped in traffic or at stop lights?

Having the gas engine shut down whenever possible means you are not adding to the air quality problem and that is a very good thing.

Thanks for the info Mike. Even though you have abandoned us with your fancy new Scion.
