I have about 1200 miles on my new hs250h. I have always done better than the epa estimates. I have lots of time in a Prius and that led to the purchase of this car. It was easy for me in stop and go driving, no really long trips to get close to 50mpg all the time in the prius, just using the display that car had. Longer trips, I could get over 55mpg. With 3 adults and luggage for a cruse I got 54.8 driving form Northern VA to NJ. I was happy with that! After reading this forum I ordered a scan gauge. I got the scan gauge ii today and am not sure what are the most helpful gauges to look at nor what I should be looking for. There are lots of things you all talk about and I can't really figure it out. I have not been able to find a place for a beginner to get caught up. People comment on the transition from s3 to s4. I have noticed that the engine is slower to cut off than the Prius, but what gauges are used to tell the stages? and what are they all? RPM is helpful to know when the engine really does cut off as you can't always hear it in this car. On the demo I used before my purchase, I got very close to 40 mpg on a mostly highway 770 mile trip... with my hours in a Prius and understand the pulse and glide technique. I can't seem to get the HS to glide. The sg seems to prove to me that there is no middle ground like on the prius. If you are not adding energy it is regenerating and putting drag onto the system. Tires...I have upped the pressure to 40psi in each tire. They are rated at 51. As I drive the pressure rises to mid 40's. Not sure i want to go much about this. Ideas on this car and a good pressure? Also, I have found that the Eco mode is good if you are not thinking about what you are doing, but have had better results with regular and even the power setting depending on traffic and terrain. Anyone else felt that having more direct control helped? Still can't find a way to get it to glide. Hope this isn't too much for one post.
