I am comparing my mpg with my mpg.

 From the day I drove it off the lot I have had my air conditioning on
and set to 75 degrees.  So all my comparisons include the loss due to
air conditioning.  I was getting about 47 mpg. I am now getting about 42
mpg.  The two possible explanations are a weather change (it's been what
I consider hot) or an ECU flash.  I am still monitoring my mpg and now
that the weather is back to normal, I am still down about 5 mpg.  That's
why I requested the experience of others.

what dealer, what other person at that dealer, check you air and emergency
brake just cause:) could be a good heads up, I run my business on windows
3.1 , never crashed, have never lost data, hate to go backwards but
it's the only direction that work's.

I'm not sure what this has to do with the Prius.

check your tire pressure, the level of the oil, and the emergency brake is
fully disengaged, otherwise i have no other suggestions as i did not have
your experience with our updated cars...

best of luck bro!
