    We've had our 2007 hybrid for about 2 weeks and, so far, seem to have been averaging about 27 mpg. Looking forward to some improvement after breakin...:woot:

    Welcome! That's a great vehicle to have, especially after you have had some time to get used to it and learn a bit about what makes it tick. We have at least a few FEH owners who are averaging well into the 30s and above.

    2WD or 4WD?

    Hi Will:

    ___Welcome to CleanMPG and have you had the chance to read Gary G’s excellent Hypermiling the Ford Escape Hybrid ... article yet? It is a great start if you have not done so already.

    ___Take your time and as your FEH is breaking in, you are also breaking in by learning to drive your new hybrid far beyond what you may or may not have thought possible in a multitude of situations just a year ago. This does not mean you have to but you are still saving a huge amount of fuel vs. those driving the std. Escape in a fashion you may deem to be inefficient in the not to distant future ;)

    ___Good Luck and welcome again.

    ___Wayne

    May I also suggest the FEH FAQ, http://www.greenhybrid.com/wiki/index.php/Ford_Escape_Hybrid_FAQ

    Because for some reason, I'm compelled to keep suggesting that FEH owners read it... ;)

    At any rate, enjoy the FEH, and let the MPGs come to you.
