The EPA estimates and manufacturers' are a good barometer BUT, what MPG/MPL did you really get on your last tank of fuel?

53.5 mpg (2010 Prius) over 547.9 miles using 10.241 gallons of 10% ethanol regular gasoline from 12/24/14 to 01/17/15 ... not bad for the winter time...but the really good news is that the price for gasoline has dropped to 1.99/gallon!!! Yes! :-)
