There are lots of reasons for poor mileage, what are you getting and what is your driving style?

i've resigned myself to the fact that I am not going to get much better than 18-19 mpg in the city.

but, Prius mileage isn't why we bought our PIs did we?

The MPG equivalent is 14 city and about 20 highway.

I BABY the hell out of the gas and brakes (almost never use breaks just coast to lights)

Yeah but being in Canada a fill up cost me $90 today, if I was out west it'd be almost $120

Have you scanned for diagnostic codes? Check your tire pressures, alignment in spec? Correct factory tire size? etc.

Are you tracking fuel economy manually using km driven & liters used vs dash readout?

I check everything manually and with dash.

Tires are basically new but I had winter's on recently. Pressure and alignments are good
