On a 2014 prius plugin, if the commute to work is 38 miles (76 Combined) and If I charge the battery only once a day at work ( I dont have charger at home), how many miles per gallon avg I would get. The car runs only 12 miles on pure electric. Please let me know

Toyota estimates an eV range of 11 miles for the pHEV Prius.

If you are able to get 11 miles from the plug-in charge at work (you have to stay below 62 mph for these 11 miles), and with the estimate in regular hybrid mode of 50 MPG...

To Home: 27 miles / 50 mpg = 0.54 gal

To Work: 38 miles / 50 mpg = 0.76 gal

Round-trip MPG: 76 miles / 1.3 gal = 58.46 MPG overall.

This is an estimate. Actual results may vary.
