Alice and I just completed a coast-to-coast (almost) trip in my gen1, 2001 Prius.

This trip totalled over 5500 miles from Raleigh, North Carolina to Redlands, California, where our daughter and her family live. Much of the trip was through mountains and desert and the air-conditioner was on over 80% of the time. As you can see by the picture below, our mileage for 5526 miles was 41.7 MPG. Pretty darn great for a 12-year old hybrid.
