New Ford Escape Hybrid – Glide technique…

Hi All:

___Welcome to the just launched Hybrid Owners Community – Ford Escape Hybrid forum! With that, here we go

___At the World FE Championships last week, Dan Bryant brought to the table a new Ford Escape Hybrid - Glide technique that does away with both LGA and the double tap Brake - Glide entries. DebbieKatz is currently using it on her daily grind and may have a shot at a 60 + mpg tank on the next go around. Although I cannot give out the details just yet, Dan is writing up a succinct document and I will be asking Debbie to demonstrate the new technique(s) at the Hybridfest Hypermiling clinics to be held in Madison, WI next month!

___It really enhances the capability of the FEH without the guesswork and std. learning curve that the FEH used to require

___Good Luck and I know you are going to like it!

___Wayne

OK Wayne, I know you like to continue to give us something to strive for, but I'm looking for that 53mpg tank, with *possibly* some 60mpg or more trips

That said, this tank is still above 50 (51.8mpg) & my MTE+trip odo = 713mi.

Look out, Pravus Prime - I promise to teach it to you *after* the MPG Challenge, but first, I have to beat you

Thanks for the new forum, Wayne - this was a great idea

Re: New Ford Escape Hybrid – Glide technique…

Just out of curiosity, how does the FEH and family fare up on the 65+ MPH highways? Is it still possible to pull into the 40 MPG range? Assuming I'd be driving it at about 55 MPH. I'd really, really like to have an Escape again, and it could be a possible contender for my next car if it can do well on the highway.

I'm regularly seeing in the 40mpg's driving 55mph on the highway This past spring, on a trip back from Sheboygan (about 60mi.), I got 42mpg going 55mph - at night, with the lights on. And last weekend's trip to & from Indiana, plus the driving on the course & into town for breakfast & dinner, came out to 42mpg as well - in spite of the fact that I was using A/C off & on throughout

Sorry Wayne, I must have not seen that technique! I think I posted everything as I discovered it when I discovered it. This is BS Pal!

Re: New Ford Escape Hybrid – Glide technique…

Hi Gary:

___Sorry, it isn't. You won't be using the LGA or double tap nearly as often thanks to Dan's work in his wife’s FEH Debbie is already improving upon her own segments thanks to it too! Four members pulled over 70 on a RT while using it for the first time at the World FE Championships and I have a feeling someone can will pull an 80 mpg segment in one now with even higher speeds simply because it is a lot more Prius like.

___Good Luck

___Wayne

Re: New Ford Escape Hybrid – Glide technique…

It's for real, Gary - I pulled a 70.2mpg on the route, & mine was the lowest

And my current tank average is 50.5mpg at 200+mi., in spite of rain, SummerFest traffic, & road construction

Re: New Ford Escape Hybrid – Glide technique…

Actually, I read that more to be that Gary is bit peeved that, although he released every item he found the near instant it was found, the updated technique won't be available (or even described in brief) for some time.

Re: New Ford Escape Hybrid – Glide technique…

Anxiously awaiting! Maybe I unknowingly used this technique on my single 65.0 mpg commute. I haven't been able to do better than 57 since

I'm not driving as much right now, so my patience is longer that others, but now I'm really sad that I won't be at Hybridfest to see it first hand

Any chance of a video posted here afterwards?

That was my take, too. But even if that wasn't his point, it is still very valid. I would think that anything to help FE would be disclosed whenever discovered. I guess we have a paradigm shift now, but I really don't see why.
