I purchased mine the first week of january and I am at 45.7 avg mpg and climbing. The trip meter always hovers around 47.3 so the overall mpg takes a while to build up. I let my wife drive it for a week to see how she likes it and she lost about 5mpg on the trip meter. So all you have to do is accelerate gradually, but still keeping up with traffic, not going over 65mph on highways, coasting when anticipating on stops ahead to build up your battery and working at getting 100% of your braking energy returned. If you do all of that you will get the mpg as advertised. One more thing, I live in florida and the terrain is flat. Don't know if that is important or not and the weather of course is mostly warm. I will say this: Even if you cannot seem get more than 40mpg, the car is well worth it. It is quite comfortable, quiet and very smooth running. It is also unique in looks which is nice that you don't look like everybody else. I have received numerous compliments on the car.Report it
This user might have a lemon because his MPG is very low. Either that or he/she is not driving efficiently which will lower your MPGs in every carReport it
We're all waiting for warmer weather to see how it improves our MPG. Limiting your speed to under 62 mph shoud be giving you numbers closer to EPA, however. Short trips in cold weather can be hard on your average MPG.Report it
I recently looked at an Escape and then went to Fuelly.com and see that it's mpg is overstated. Kia and Hyundai were sued for misrepresenting mpg. and Ford should be sued also. Do all a favor and report it.Report it
I have had mine for almost 2 weeks and I am regularly hitting well above 40mpg. I even went 90 miles on one trip and hit 48.5mpg on the highway. It's about how you drive, accelerate, and brake.Report it
