Getting a little desperate here aren’t we? One stars for not hitting a time estimate? That’s comical. I already mentioned 9am in Anaheim would be impossible to not get a ride to LA. Almost a ZERO percent chance of needing to deadhead.
You are very wrong. For starters, 32 miles is NOT two gallons unless the traffic was idling about 3 hours. Its one gallon for most and 2/3 of a gallon for Prius’s. So your gas estimate is exaggerated by at least $6.
THEN you double dipped by using the .30 figure WHICH ALREADY INCLUDES FUEL. So you now have added another $3ish that isn’t real.
Lastly you are committing the mistake of analyzing it and an individual ride rather than factoring any possibility that there may be a short high surges trip at the end of the rainbow in Anaheim.
So humbly speaking, you were wrong on just about every point……..
I can accept I'm wrong about it, no biggie, that's why I was asking.
I'm not driving a Prius so don't have the fuel economy you do, and my maintenance costs and depreciation ($0.30/mile) are in addition to fuel costs. In that respect a Prius is pretty affordable.
Maybe the time estimate is accurate too, and maybe getting 1-starred is unrealistic, I've just come to expect 75 minutes to morph into 90 minutes because of changing traffic volume at those hours, but I'm not in CA. Maybe you haven't heard, "the app said 74 minutes, why didn't you drive faster?"
You are right on the deadhead--I would just expect to get screwed on that, but maybe not in CA, maybe Uber & Lift blow unicorn dust up your app on a regular basis. (I'm joking, thank your for clearing things up)
