Florida fun - getting 30+ miles/gallon

Vehicle
2006 Ford Escape Hybrid 4dr SUV (2.3L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid CVT)
Review
Rented a Prius for a day to "check" out the hybrids - was told that the Ford Escape was similar to the Toyota. Almost bought a Prius - but really wanted an SUV. Searched the internet for local dealer inventory; good experience, good salesman, good finance manager. I think showing up the last day of the month helped - with the Edmunds info in hand. Mileage in city is usually 32. Having trouble getting 30 MPG highway.
Favorite Features
Love the height off the road. Zippy, does feel like a V6. Seats fold flat. Good look - bigger wheels, solid feeling doors and handles. Like the rear opening window.
Suggested Improvements
AC must run off battery, not only just when motor is running. Can't see gauges well at night. MORE storage - when I changed from a Highlander - had two crates I couldn't put in vehicle. Larger pockets for doors as an example. When folding rear seats flat, you lose all the storage behind front seats.
