Getting Real World Mileage Data From Hybrids

Via Slashdot, a database that compares actual mileage numbers of various vehicles as reported by their owners. According to the Slashdot writeup,
The hot-selling Toyota Prius averages 48 miles per gallon among over 150 cars from across the country, with most drivers achieving between 45 and 51. The V-6 Honda Accord Hybrid delivers 30 miles per gallon while Ford's Escape Hybrid SUV averages 28. All hybrid owners are encouraged to post their data for these and other cars on the Internet's largest hybrid mileage database.
Unfortunately, the site is currently unavailable due to the Slashdot effect. The link above can be seen at Mirrordot.
