They have a great reputation.

I'll back that one up.

They are an amazing tire.

However, I don't know what they do to Prius fuel mileage....

I couldn't answer that with respect to the Blizzak either.  Actual mileage
is effected by rolling resistance and the measured mileage is effected by
tire diameter.  Anecdotal evidence of mileage is useless given the fact that
air temperature, wind speed and direction are major factors rarely mentioned
in these reports.  My mileage seems to drop a bit when my Blizzaks are on,
but the Blizzaks are only on during cold weather when my heater/defroster is
running most of the time.

A friend of mine claims his gasoline powered Suburban gets 40 mpg.  Imagine
that.

I've been thinking the same thing.
