SUV vs. Prius – mpg results

Saturday, I ended up filling up both our cars with gas. Needless to say, the Prius demolished the Highlander in mpg and cost/mile. The chart below illustrates how fuel efficient vehicles can really reduce our dependence on foreign oil.

    Gallons    Miles    Total Cost    Cost/Mile    MPG

Prius    7.14    316    $13.92    $0.04    44.26

Highlander    14.2    276    $27.69    $0.10    19.44
