I took at 120mile trip and the CONS reading was 59.7 at the highest point, using the cruise control mostly. I was anxious to fill up the tank and see how that indicated mpg would help the overall mpg. Surprisingly it was only 49.1 when I filled it I thought sure that 120 mile run would have sent me to at least 55mpg again or maybe better. I suppose all the fuel I saved on the trip was gobbled up by my short hops to the grocery store only about 1 mile away and downhill at that. Yes I can glide down to it but of course returning home it's all uphill and I have to get into the power area of the ECO mode to get up the hill <sigh>. There is no other way to get back up without going uphill somewhere. I've really been paying attention to that 'sweet spot" on the HSI display between no re-gen and no EV. It's not too hard to find and maintain once you get the hang of it. I only wish that the HSI display of the outline of the car would show me where that spot is, it might make it easier to see. I realize I'd be looking to see nothing but EV power alone but to keep it there with that display for me isn't easy. Still learning and having fun with it too! This forum is such a great source of info with tons of REALLY informed and knowledgeable folks I love it!
