Excellent 2006 Ford Escape Hybrid

I have been achieving 90% mpg that the EPA rates for the Escape Hybrid in city driving. The area I live in has many hills and has a variance of speed limits from 20mph to 45mph. I believe that I would achieve or better the EPA rating if there were less hills and speed limits of 30mph or lower. I also drove 1500 miles on a trip and average around 29-30 mpg and that included mountain driving in Tennessee and North Carolina. So far I am really pleased with the Ford Escape Hybrid.
Electric motor, driving ease, comfortable seating, a lot of storage.
Heated outside mirrors standard. Design vehicle for running boards (due to undercarriage design, cannot install). Add compass/outside temperature gage.
