I have had two hybrids, Toyota and Lexus, and find the computer mileage overstated by 5-8% in each..... So, when I read the mpg that people are getting I wonder are you taking the computer at face value or are you checking the old fashioned way.... Edmunds needs to look into this problem to see who is calibrating their computers intentionally to keep happy customers?Report it
I'll be writing a separate revew, but I wanted to add to ralphs42 comment above...I, too, have found the car computer calculated milage to be off by about 7-10%. I calcualte my milage the old fashion way (even going the extra steps to make sure I fill up at the same pump at the same gas station every time). My calculated milage has been hovering at 37 mpg for mixed city/highway drivingReport it
I have taken my MPG old school way filling up all the way reseting trip A and then filling up again and dividing trip A by the gal. fuel i just put in. it always came pretty close to what computer was predicting. read my review for more info.Report it
