I just bought a new 2013 Ford Fusion Hybrid. :woot: I am new to hybrids and driving techniques to maximize MPG. I took it out for a couple test runs to see how it did, and to get a feel of how/when the EV kicks in. Here is a small in-town "city" test. I drove about 1.8 miles to my parents house. There is about 6 stop signs/stop lights on this route. But I manages 50.2MPG ! ! I decided to do a constant speed MPG test this morning. I drove 29.6 miles, all freeway. I set the cruise control to 62 MPH and turned on eco mode option. I chose 62 MPH because that is the Max speed using just the batteries to maintain speed. And when set at 62, it did a pretty good job. I could see the gauges turn blue with the EV displayed, signifying all electric mode. It went maybe a half mile to a mile at a time in all electric mode, then the gas engine would kick on for a mile or two, then the electric would kick back on for another half mile or so. It pretty much did this the entire drive. Anyways, I got 47mpg on that trip which is exactly the EPA rating! Not bad for only having 150 total miles on the car!
