Awesome on the highway if you drive slow

ReviewI bought this car for my 65 mile round trip commute. It's awesome on the highway if I drive at a constant speed. Going 80, I'll get about 42 mpg. 65-70 mph and it will be around 45-48 mpg. Be a pain to everyone else (55-60mph) and get 49-52 mpg. Acceleration is horrible, and so is the throttle response when trying to stomp on the accelerator pedal. Overall, this car does what it is intended to, be a great commuter. In addition, it is easy to drive at the limits because the low rolling resistance tires are always screaming at you.
Best FeaturesInstantaneous mpg indicator. This gauge makes driving a hybrid like a video game where the highscore is high MPG.
Worst FeaturesThrottle/acceleration response. I'm a left-foot-braker, and when I use the gas pedal after a stop light, there is about a half second pause before the engine responds.
