Is the MPG you post here derived from actual measurement of fuel used vs mileage or is it taken from the digital readout on your dash? I purchased new Fusion Hybrid, (actually a dealer demo with 16,000 miles) on new year's eve and was thrilled with the measured MPG shown on the dash but have been dissapointed when I did an actual measurement. I was showing anywhere between 47-52 MPG on the dash but I have only been getting between 39-41 MPG by actual measurement. While that seems pretty good I average 36 MPG with my 2010 gas Toyota Corolla and consistently get about 45 MPG on the interstate. I also do no hot rod and drive pretty conservativeley but I have yet to get close to the advertized mileage. In fact, this is the first car I have owned since EPA fuel ratings have been posted that I haven't exceeded the advertized MPG. So, if the MPG you are getting is true MPG and not the digital readout, what is your secret?Report it
