    We're home again and I'm catching up slowly. The Prius averaged well over 50 mpg this trip, carrying cymbals and stands, three people and all of our overnight bags. It's a little gutless on the uphill hauls, but still respectable. Loved seeing 57.7 mph on the way back...we actually got it to 57.8 before hitting the flats and dropping to around 53.5. The Grapevine brought us down to 49.7 and then coming down the hill took it back to around 50.2, where it stayed for the duration. Loved only filling the tank three times for the entire round trip ($75 total to transport three people from SoCa to Reno)

      Good mileage considering the load. And refreshing to see that there are people in the US that do care about emissions and environment.

      I hope that Sticks had a good performance.

      Excellent. Our Jetta diesel averages 45mpg and we've seen up to 49mpg on trips with lots of highway miles. Diesel is not nearly as clean as a prius, though (yet).

      Ouch! Pls don't remind me. My car gets only around 20 mpg.
