I return! I was active on this site some 10 years ago, back when I had an old Accord, and boy did I love it. Then it got stolen. Then I had to get a car with an automatic transmission, and it would not hypermile for ***, no matter what I did with it. There wasn't much point in tracking my progress with that car (2007 Optima), so I stopped. But this year I got a Niro! Dear god I love this car. It hits EPA rating effortlessly, and just mildly gentle driving gets you in the 55-60mpg range. Plus, comfortable and drives beautifully. A nit to pick: its a very large hatchback, not a CUV. It's also a damn nice large hatchback, and I love hatchbacks. In general, I get how this hybrid system works and the information it gives, although minimal, is useful. The instant mpg gauge is helpful. The cumulative mpg reads a bit high on mine; when it tells me I have ~55mpg, I am actually getting about 52.5mpg. Doesn't matter, had.. mpg. The eco gauge on the left of the dash cluster confuses me though. Its not a tach, and I can't figure out what information it is actually telling me. Its not instant mpg, its not battery current flow, its... what is it? P.S. Your hybrid section needs a Kia entry.
