A hybrid vehicle will not achieve any better fuel economy then a regular gas version if the driver does not learn to drive differently. you need to understand how the system works before jumping into a hybrid. Word of advise, if you plan on spending money for a hybrid and are unfamiliar with the technology make sure you have a salesperson that can teach you the basics. You will have to learn to drive all over again.Report it
I had Similar results on my mileage when I first got my Sonata. About 24-25 MPG but I was running my AC as I did when I had my Charger and Corvette, basically all the time. I am in the So Cal Desert and it was 105+ for a large stretch of my summer purchase. I had zero ECO points during that period. I tried driving it without AC for a full tank to see how that affect my city mileage and tried to âearnâ eco point by getting the 8 bars and was surprised to find I got just over 37 MPG on that tank. That was suffering through some heat. Now I use the AC when I need to and roll down the windows when I can and am getting 33-34 mpg.
