    roof rack on a Prius?

    I am really interested in buying a new Toyota Prius. I have always used a Yakima roof rack to transport my bikes, kayak and snowboards/skiis. Does anyone who owns a Prius have a roof rack on their car? Does it greatly affect the mileage? Am i being stupid worrying about things like the effects of roof rack on my hybrid's mileage? Just wondering.

    This is totally off-topic but I saw a Prius towing a trailer with a 4-wheeler on it. Kinda funny I thought...

    I haven't put a roof rack on my Prius but we did order an after market trailer hitch that we put a bike rack on. It didn't do much to the mileage that I could tell. It works really well but you can't access the back with the bikes on it. Still, the car is small enough that I can get anything I need in and out of the back passenger doors.
