USENET is good but you may want to checkout a couple of other web sites:
GreenHybrid.com - excellent mileage database
PriusChat.com - excellent Prius specific web site
Both sites have information specific to the Prius and how to get the
most out of it. There are other sites and I would recommend reading
first to get a feel and flavor. You have choices and I've found these
sites work for me.

I've had my Prius for almost 6 months now and still reach in my pocket for
the key occasionally. I don't know how long it will take me to learn.

For some reason this morning at first intersection I reached for the
gear shift. Only been driving this car a year. Has been 2 weeks since I
drove my truck.
Biggest problem I have is pulling on the door handle of the truck before
I am reminded it requires a key.

There is a slot on the lower dash to the right of the steering wheel. Just
slip the smart key into the slot and you don't have to hand the attendant
anything (except a tip).
The problem is I sometimes forget to take the smart key out of the slot when
I get the car back.

I refill at about 400 miles -- or, when the last bar is lit. If it's
blinking, I head for the nearest petrol station.
That behavior will last about three or maybe four weeks.
After that, you will walk up to your house and expect the front door to
unlock when you touch it!
Where I live (near San Francisco) there are so many Prius that the
parking attendants, car wash places, valet parkers, etc. quickly got
used to them. It's not a problem anymore.
That works, too.
