Bog standard hybrid but as with any hybrid economy is dependant on battery, the older it gets the lower the MPG.

No hard acceleration or race cuz their late.

Maybe coz it’s a import with low mileage maybe that’s why am getting good on fuel what do you think.
I m getting on 2017 with 37000 Milage with full tank on car trip showing 72MPG 550 but never reserve light on next time will check until reserve what’s ur Milage ?? In my previous 2012 Prius I use to get full tank around 500 but in cold freezing weather around 460

Exactly battery health factors into mpg.

higher mileage less efficient engine hence less mpg.

Acceleration also. Just don’t drive it like you stole it and it’ll be fine.

Oh shit. My Prius is giving me 40-43 MPG lol

2012 320k miles on the clock.

But I just can’t bring myself to buy a car for £1.10 per mile
I would chuck a bottle of fuel cleaner and get full service genuine parts and plugs changed for that mileage.

Have you changed the hybrid battery yet or other major parts?

Would you buy a newer car for £9 an hour.

Which is what you get on top of the mileage rate.

Or even better get an EV and then you keep the £1 for going through the CC 24/7 and also get another £0.15 a mile.

The cost of a EV ofsets the cost of the car.
EV you’ll save £10.5 a day.
£2730 a year ( if you go everyday to CC).
0.15 is chargeable to 25% commision also.
The figures don’t make it viable to get a EV currently due to the high prices of EV.
the offset in savings don’t justify purchasing one.
Also don’t forget the charging time.
Charging time = time of the road.

I work nights big boy. Still get to keep the £1

Don’t do more than 130 miles for £200 quid.

Go back to opening doors.

Hybrid battery went at 100k fitted one from Toyota £1100. I will try your fuel cleanser once the tank becomes empty

Dont normally agree with luxbod comments.
Have to agree with luxbod here as its quality over quantity. I personally think am a very good driver in and around Central, but have only 15" tyres without alloys and sometimes struggle to turn left without touching pavement with tyre. Now imagine doing that with 19" alloys on s class ?. Rather do few jobs and make 400 then do lots and still only make same with loads of bossman stress.

My S Class payments and Insurance are less than the average Prius Rental.

Did 160 miles that day (including dead miles) and my S Class does 32mpg on average.

I wouldn't advise you get an S Class as they have closed the books on UberLux for at least 3 years.

There are less than 200 Lux in London.

Ever better drive an S Class with 18" wheels!
