Noob alert! Wondering if there is any sense in asking whether or not there are any 2010 Ford Fusion Hybrid / Mercury Milan Hybrid techniques that are specific to these vehicles for better fuel economy? Are there any techniques that should (or definitely should not) be used with the FFH/MMH that might be obvious (or perhaps not-so-obvious no-no's)? Wayne's eXCELlent rules of thumb are below, which are a great stepping off point... * Slowing down and maintaining even throttle pressure; * Gradually accelerating and smoothly braking; * Maintaining a safe distance between vehicles and anticipating traffic conditions; * Coasting up to red lights and stop signs to avoid fuel waste and brake wear; * Minimize use of heater and air conditioning to reduce the load on the engine; * Close windows at high speeds to reduce aerodynamic drag; * Applying the "Pulse and Glide" technique while maintaining the flow of traffic; * Minimize excessive engine workload by using the vehicle's kinetic forward motion to climb hills, and use downhill momentum to build speed; and * Avoiding bumps and potholes that can reduce momentum Credit: Link to AutoBlogGreen.com 1,445 miles/tank article Sorry if I've missed any resources already out there. I haven't seen anything extremely detailed (as far as efficient driving "habits") on the new Ford Fusion hybrids, and thought here would be a great place to ask! Anyone have any links or thoughts they'd like to share? Any Fusion-based ideas from Basic Efficiency Skills (like those above that anyone/everyone could or should be doing) to Fusion-specific Advanced Techniques would be appreciated... Thanks in advance!
