More questions about maximizing fuel economy on the C... I see some of your amazing MPG results and I want to learn how to do it - been reading a lot but I'm still really confused! We've got a 630 mile trip this weekend and want to maximize our fuel efficiency as much as possible - especially on the highway since our entire drive will be on that. My car's average fuel consumption over 750 miles has been around 45MPG. Most of the driving has been all highway. Any tips for that would be really appreciated... Anyways, here's my questions! I'm really trying to learn the art of driving a hybrid to it's max capabilities! I've read that driving too much in EV is bad because it drains the battery and then the car needs to use gas to charge the battery. However, I've found the best MPGs I've been able to get is by trying to drive in EV as much as possible. So how do you stay in EV and keep the battery charged? Also, I've read several posts saying that the worst situation is when you're driving with arrows coming out from the ICE & the battery and the battery being drained - is that correct? People have said that the best situation is driving with the ICE on and the battery being charged... I've had a really hard time finding that sweet spot - I'm either in EV or i'm in the situation with the ICE & battery (battery being drained)... Any tips on that? With Pulse and Glide - I've been having some difficulty with that on the highway... I've read that pulsing up speed, then gliding down is really good for fuel efficiency. However, I find the car slows down too quickly when gliding down and pulsing takes up a lot of gas. I'm probably doing it wrong now that I think about it - I guess I'm pulsing and coasting... i always take my foot off the gas, and maybe that's the wrong approach - should i be just applying a little bit of pressure to the gas to slow the rate of deceleration? Acceleration - when accelerating, I've read that you should try to accelerate between halfway and 3/4 of the eco range - never in power. I've always try to do that but I find the car takes a really long time to get up to speed limit... I also read that you should 'accelerate quickly' and get to speed so you're not using gas. However, accelerate quickly seems to mean more power (i.e. into the power range) so you can get to speed quicker. Aren't they a contradiction? ECO mode vs. normal mode - seems like there's debate on which mode is better but I've had the car in ECO mode since day one. Thanks for your help!!
