Rather than repeating common "wisdom" on driving habits, can performance profiles be correlated with fuel economy and shared with owners of similar vehicles. For instance, 1st generation Prius hybrid owners learned through community correspondence that brisk acceleration results in improved fuel economy based on the theory that the most efficient operating RPM is in the mid-range. Can that be verified?

Hey Mark,

Thanks for reaching out and for contributing your idea.

At this time, we do not have such a feature in the app, but we encourage drivers to create such communities here in our online community.

As for your question, we wouldn't be at liberty to say since we haven't conducted such tests or research. However, I encourage any other Prius owners in our community to chime into this discussion with Mark.
