I test the Prius Prime real world mpg with no charge on a 326 mile drive, driving normal highway speeds in normal mode, to simulate what people can expect to get for mileage normally, once battery is depleted.
Driving primarily in eco mode I was able to go over 1,000 miles before my first fill up!! Here's how I did it!!
Took a trip to North Carolina and back from New Hampshire in my Toyota Prius Prime. I did not attempt to get the best gas mileage - I cranked the A/C and tried to make the trip as short as possible. This should give you an idea of what to expect for fuel economy over long trips in the Toyota Prius Prime.

Hypermiling in my Prius Prime plug in hybrid in eco mode on a 300+ mile road trip.
I had to take a trip from Florida to Indiana. I was gone for a week and put on over 2400 miles. I endured freezing temperatures, snow, rain, and mountains. My Prius Prime performed great. This is a quick video showing my mpg over the course of a week. Enjoy!
"The 2017 Toyota Prius Prime offers more, but not too much more, than the typical hybrid; though it certainly offers more than the Prius plug-in that it replaces. By way of explanation, the EV-only range of the Prime is now 25-miles at up to 84 miles-per-hour. That’s double the range it claimed before, but still only half of the Chevrolet Volt’s EV range."
