And the 2nd tank is in
By jay357 on


2012 Hyundai Sonata Hybrid 4dr Sedan (2.4L 4cyl gas/electric hybrid 6A)


As I previously reported my first tank was 28 mpg. Now I have added fuel for the 2nd time and my mileage is 37mpg combined just like the sticker said. So I don't know what the Edmunds tester problems are. I also notice my tires only had 30 psi in them, so I aired them up to 40 psi and am hoping to net another 3 mpg.
Edmunds comments about quirky hybrid. I disagree, most of the time you can't tell when it shifts from gas to electric or vice versa. Occasionally you can feel it but even then it just feels like an automatic transmission shift.

Best Features

37 mpg and it's not even broke in yet. Smooth ride, extremely quiet on the highway.

Worst Features

Just what I have mentioned in previous posts plus backseat headroom will be a challenge for anyone over 5'10".
