I drove 2014 Prius v from San Jose to Palm Springs during the Thanksgiving week and noticed interesting thing in regards to the fuel economy. On the way to Palm Springs, I took Hwy 5 and averaged 80mph with only one pit stop. Gas mileage was merely 36mpg. During my stay near Palm Springs, I did city driving with many stop & go. Gas mileage went up to 44mpg. A constant 80mph on Hwy 5 typically generated a better mileage than stop & go when I drive regular cars. Is this normal for Hybrid? Obviously I am new to Hybrid.
