I agree. The best I can do with real world driving is 35 mpg's. Overall, I do like the car.Report it
After putting nearly 2000 miles on my C-Max, I was able to get 47.1 mpg in freeway driving. It simply requires attention and patience: gauges show when the car is using the gas engine and when the electric motor kicks in. Backing off of the gas pedal a very small amount can result in a significant increase in fuel economy. When I first got the vehicle, mileage in the mid- to upper 30s was typical. Now I can get 42 mpg easily, and the figure continues to rise. So, yes, the vehicle CAN get the EPA figure of 47 mpg with an intelligent driver.Report it
